School bullying can seriously impact a student’s safety. Victims and witnesses to the bullying may be fearful of the bully, and may be reluctant to report the incident. However, a mobile app called STOPit enables students and parents to report bullying without revealing their identity. The app is a two-way messaging system where students can message administrators to report problems. Police officers can also be dispatched in the event that a student’s life may be in danger. The app’s anonymous reporting system aims to increase the opportunity for students to say something if they see a student being bullied or are being bullied themselves.
