We are pleased to announce that Schodack Central School District will be using STOPit, an online anonymous reporting system designed to deter bullying, discrimination and other inappropriate or unsafe behaviors among students. They can use STOPit to reach out for help if they or a peer are facing a personal crisis, experiencing bullying, or are otherwise in need of assistance. STOPit consists of a website, a mobile app and a back-end incident management system for our school administrators.
Schodack CSD will be launching STOPit for student and family use on September 22, 2023. On that date, all Schodack CSD students will be taught about STOPit, and students in grades 3-12 will be asked to bookmark the STOPit website on their district-provided Chromebooks. Students who own a smartphone will also be invited to download the STOPit app if they wish to.
We also encourage parents/guardians to download the STOPit app and search for your student’s school using the directory. You can privately ask for help for your student, a family member or any Schodack student you feel may need help.
If you have any questions about STOPit in Schodack CSD, please contact the Director of Teaching & Learning Alyssa Sabbatino by email (email@example.com).
Students and families can use STOPit to:
- Make anonymous reports through the STOPit mobile app, website or via phone with the 24/7 Incident Response Center
- Submit photo or video evidence (App/Web Only)
- Alert school administrators to issues early on before they escalate
- Connect immediately via text with certified mental health counselors through the Crisis Text Line located in the app
How to Report A Concern
For the website and mobile app, search “Schodack” and then select your school.
Mobile App: Download the app from the Apple App Store or Google Play,
Phone: Call the 24/7 Incident Response Center to submit a report at 1-916-562-3130
STOPit is Anonymous
No personal information is needed to use STOPit. The only way personally identifiable information will be accessible through STOPit is if a student or family member voluntarily includes it in their submitted request or report. All submissions will be reviewed by the appropriate district-level and/or school-building staff.
