    Students anonymously send text messages to stop bullying, report drugs, violence, and whatever violation that needs to be reported. Students are encouraged to text a keyword and the message goes to an operator who then interviews them via text to get information. The operator collects information and a transcript of the conversation is emailed to designated staff members in the schools to address the concern. The calls from students are anonymous. Text-2-Stop-It staff are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. (Including summer).
