What is the erase | Report It tool and how does it work?

The ERASE Report It tool is an online, anonymous reporting tool where students can report anything they find worrisome or concerning directly to their school/school district’s safe school coordinators. The reporting tool can be accessed at erase.gov.bc.ca or directly at erasereportit.gov.bc.ca. Using the tool is easy and can be done from a mobile device, computer or tablet.

When a student submits a report, they will be guided through a set of questions where they will share the information they have about the worrisome behaviour or incident.  Examples of behaviours or incidents to report include:

  • Bullying/Cyberbullying
  • Harassment
  • Social Media
  • Sexting
  • Inappropriate Sexual Behaviour
  • Concerns about Adults
  • Concerns about a school
  • Racism/Discrimination
  • Drugs or Alcohol
  • Weapons or Gang Activity
  • Threats
  • Violence or Fighting
  • Mental Health Concern
  • Suicide
  • Vandalism or Property Damage
  • School Attack/Shooting
  • Or anything else that is worrisome or concerning

The tool is designed to be completely anonymous. However, if the student wishes to be contacted by the safe school coordinator or other designates, they do have the option to submit their name.  When submitting a report, students will be asked to acknowledge that the report entered is truthful. This significantly minimizes false reports.
