Waynesboro Public Schools partnering with STOPit to empower, protect students

STOPitWaynesboro City Schools has enrolled with STOPit, the leading technology platform for schools that deters and controls harmful or inappropriate conduct. STOPit empowers students with an easy app to safely and anonymously report anything of concern to school officials – from cyber bullying to threats of violence or self-harm. STOPit empowers students to stand up for themselves and others while giving our schools the insight we need to keep students safe.

“Our school division actively works to protect our students from situations that detract from their learning. By partnering with STOPit, our students and parents have an anonymous way to report bullying and other concerns they see in the our schools. Our administrators believe that they will be able to be more responsive and timely with this new anonymous reporting solution. The addition of STOPit furthers our mission to provide quality learning environments for the citizens of Waynesboro,” stated Dr. Ryan Barber, Director of Student Services.

With STOPit, students can submit anonymous reports containing text, photos, or video. Administrators are then able to manage incidents in a backend management system called DOCUMENTit. DOCUMENTit provides efficient and powerful investigative tools to our staff, including the ability to message with the reporter, which will allow us to address issues instantly.

STOPit does more than just help schools address incidents and mitigate risk. STOPit will also help us go beyond reacting to bullying and inappropriate behavior, and instead start deterring it. As young people continue to engage more with technology every day, we are taking a proactive step to empower our students to become Upstanders in our community in the way that they feel most comfortable. We believe our adoption of STOPit is an important step in our continued effort to provide a positive school climate and a safe learning environment for our students.

Our STOPit program launch for Waynesboro elementary schools, Kate Collins Middle School, and Waynesboro High School is during the month of September.

2 classroom or in the office. DOCUMENTit, a robust incident management system, empowers administrators and management to get in front of issues to mitigate risk and adhere to the ever-evolving compliance landscape.
