A tool that empowers kids & school officials alike to take action against cyberbullying. Get the app, join the fight, and click here to learn more.
Thomas Adam Johnson‘s insight:
This seems like a neat idea for an app that schools would recommend and promote. I wonder how it is used practically by schools now. Do kids think about the app when they are being bullied?

Hi, Thanks for the inquiry! Here is feedback from two schools that have installed the STOPit School Program 🙂 Hope this lends some insight.
“Before the STOP!T app and presentation we were averaging five to six HIB reports a month through my office. Since then we have dropped down to one/two a month. I have seen a dramatic decrease in HIB Reports submitted to my office since we have started this program.”
Director of HIB – Kenilworth School District
Demika Jackson, dean of students for Somerset Academy Eagle Campus, a charter school in Jacksonville, Florida, and one of the first schools to sign up, told MintPress that a few weeks after the mobile app took off, she could see a noticeable change in the student body. Attributing the dwindling amount of cyberbullying cases to the school’s new spotlight on awareness and prevention, she said the app has become a new and effective deterrent against cyberbullying.
