We are excited to inform you that Buckeye Local Schools has enrolled with STOPit!
STOPit is an online reporting tool designed to deter and mitigate bullying and cyber abuse, consisting of an app and a back-end incident management system for school administrators.
Our students will have access to the STOPit mobile app, which has two simple but powerful features.
Report can be used by students to report incidents to school contacts anonymously.
Get Help can be used to engage in anonymous two-way communication with school contacts.
Both Report and Get Help empower students to stand up for themselves and for one another. Students have the power to help put an end to harmful and inappropriate behavior they see online through social media and other means. They can use STOPit to reach out for help if they or a peer are facing a personal crisis or experiencing bullying, abuse, or are otherwise in need of assistance. Our goal with STOPit is to create a safer, kinder school community, both online and off.
No student information is needed to use STOPit. The only way personally identifiable information will be accessible through STOPit is if a student voluntarily includes it within the content of a report or message.
Please note that your child’s school will be launching STOPit by the end of this week. Your child will be invited, not required, to download the STOPit app from the app store on his or her smartphone or tablet at no charge. Parents can also download the app to report or message their child’s school administrator.
More information and resources can be found online at stopitsolutions.com.
Below are the school specific access codes that should be used in order to report an incident to the appropriate school.

Students must be safe at school in order to learn and all students deserve the ability to come to school and receive an education without the fear of being threatened or intimidated. We encourage you to report using the STOPit app as well as contacting your child’s principal, counselor or teacher. It is my hope this will be another tool we can use to reduce the amount of bullying or harassment a student may encounter at Buckeye.
