Mount Vernon ISD, with the help of Franklin County Sheriff Ricky Jones, has initiated the STOPit App which will empower students to stand up against bullying.
Sheriff Jones learned about the anonymous reporting system last year and has spoken with other school districts, including Van ISD, who have utilized the program. He had paid for the first year’s subscription, which is around $1,200. With STOPit, students can submit anonymous reports containing text, photos or video. To learn more about this program, see the Jan. 24 edition of the Mount Vernon Optic-Herald.
