Policy No. 3421 Child Abuse/Neglect Reporting

The Provo City School District supports taking early protective measures in cases where child abuse or neglect has been alleged. As such, procedures have been set forth for identifying and referring suspected cases of abuse, as well as clarifying the role of school employees in reporting and participating in the investigation of suspected abuse pursuant to Utah State Code. It is the policy of the District that school officials cooperate and coordinate appropriately with social service and law enforcement agencies in investigating cases of reported abuse.

The Board directs the Superintendent to develop procedures which ensure that cases of abuse will be identified, reported to the proper authorities, and investigated in the appropriate manner.
