Cleveland Public Schools uses STOPit, an online and app-based system, to empower students, parents, teachers and others to anonymously report anything of concern to school officials – from cyber-bullying to threats of violence or self-harm.
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, CPS is taking a proactive step to empower students to become proactive in our community in the way that they feel most comfortable. CPS believes adoption of STOPit is an important step in the continued effort to provide a positive school climate and a safe learning environment for students.
How to Report Your Concern
With STOPit, users 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 staff, including the ability to message with the reporter, which will allow CPS to address issues instantly. To access STOPit and make an anonymous report:
- CPS recommends the app version. Users can download the app from the Apple App Store or Google Play and use corresponding access code for the District listed below.
- Web-based reporting via the STOPit website for each campus is available now. To make a report, the building level links are also below
Please keep in mind, STOPit is not an emergency response service. If you believe your call requires immediate police, fire, or paramedic response, call 9-1-1. STOPit does not provide counseling or clinical advice. If you feel you need this type of attention, please seek the assistance of a qualified clinical or medical professional.
Please use this resource responsibly. Also, when filing a report, give us as much information as possible to help speed up the investigative process.
