  • Charlotte-Gastonia-Rock Hill, NC-SC (1888PressRelease) October 07, 2011 - Some school systems are facing lawsuits from families of students who have been bullied. Now a proactive and effective solution is available. Stop-the-Bullying, a 501 (c) (3) corporation has introduced a new tool that will provide school systems, free of charge, with a solution that allows students, parents, teachers and others to confidentially report incidents of bullying.

    Stop-the-Bullying Introduces a New Confidential Bullying Reporting Tool; Now Available Free of Charge for School Systems Nationwide

    One out of every four kids is bullied.
    Each day 160,000 students miss school for fear of being bullied.
    43% fear harassment in the bathroom at school.
    100,000 students carry a gun to school.
    28% of youths who carry weapons have witnessed violence

    Stop-The-Bullying has partnered with Intercede Services to deliver its on-line solution that provides tools for the safe, anonymous reporting of a bullying incident and a resolution management capability that provides an efficient and consistent investigation management process for school administrators.

    "Stop-The-Bullying allows school systems to offer a confidential method of reporting incidents of bullying from any computer, as well as other sources, at any time," said Frank Moody of Stop-the-Bullying. "Students, parents, teachers or others can report incidents anonymously in privacy without fear of repercussions from others. It is truly revolutionary."

    The resolution management capabilities of Stop-the-Bullying address a major concern for school administrators who are facing growing responsibilities in the effort to address all of the safety concerns in and around schools. When in place, the solution helps the schools follow their defined process, as well as any government mandated requirements, to resolve reported concerns. "Stop-the-Bullying delivers a huge value in the resolution management process for schools and their administrators," added Moody. "Finally, there is a tool that allows them to respond to reported concerns in a consistent and compliant manner. This has been a serious and legitimate concern for school administrators in the past."

    Stop-the-Bullying empowers parents, teachers, administrators and students to confidentially voice their concerns and report incidents of all types while allowing schools to discover related incidents across the entire school system. It also provides protection for the victim and/or reporter from being singled out and suffering retaliation. It allows school systems to uncover and manage a wide variety of incidents including bullying, cheating, falsifying addresses, gangs, weapons on campus, drugs use and more. The schools can then conduct the resolution process in a consistent manner; confidentially and compliant with published guidelines.

    "Thirty percent of students from sixth grade through high school are victims of moderate to frequent bullying, either as bullies themselves or victims of bullying, or both," continued Moody. "School bullying and cyber bullying are frequently viewed as a significant contributor to youth brutality, including homicide and suicide."
