CARMEL, Ind. (WTHR) – Carmel Clay Schools are launching a new two-way anonymous alert system called STOPit today.
A letter to parents goes out today explaining the new mobile app that replaces the school’s previous Anonymous Alert System.
With the new system, students can anonymously report school safety issues and reach out for help if they or a peer are facing a personal crisis, experiencing situations such as bullying, theft, mental health concerns, violence, sexual harassment, substance abuse or any other student safety concern.
Students can report through the app in real time to school administrators, school resource officers or student services with as much or as little detail as they feel comfortable sharing.
Because the reports happen in real time, school personnel should be able to respond quickly.
The app also provides student with access to local law enforcement, mental health centers and crisis hotlines.
