Second and third to school safety are state compliance and time. How quickly, officials ask, can I get a reporting program off the ground?
The answer is, if you’re using STOPit, platform set up takes 30 minutes and rollout is as simple as booking a pre-programmed assembly or in-class activity.

Launching the app for your students
Getting your students started on their reporting app can be done in just three simple steps.
1. Set up your STOPit access code
Your code will be specific to your school, allowing only your students to securely log in and access reporting and messaging functions. (See below section for setting up STOPit Admin)
2. Host a STOPit launch assembly
Your school assembly is where you’ll announce STOPit to your students and is the most important part of launching STOPit at your school. Your student assembly can be a schoolwide event, a classroom event or both.
- Introduce STOPit as a tool to help address and prevent issues of bullying, cyberbullying and other inappropriate behaviors in your school.
- Play STOPit Launch video.
- Invite students to have their devices ready to download STOPit as you play the video.
- Announce and display your school’s access code.
- Students should download and activate STOPit together along with the video.
3. Continue to promote STOPit:
After the assembly, don’t forget to continually encourage students to download and use STOPit.
- Pass out Download Cards to students as they leave the assembly.
- As the year goes on, regularly encourage students to download STOPit and display the STOPit access code in classrooms.
