Granite School District unveiled a new school-based prevention program on Monday.

The program was developed by Prevent Child Abuse Utah and approved by the state board of education.

The program will help empower children to recognize, resist and report all aspects of child abuse.

Woodstock Elementary Principal, Brenda Byrnes says this is a big step to help students not only in the classroom but outside of it as well.

“As educators, we are always looking out for the kids we are always noticing what is going on with them, listening to what they are saying, how they are acting, how they are behaving so yeah anything that helps us with that is a benefit,” said Byrnes.

The program starts this spring and will be available for all the schools in the Granite School District.

If you suspect child abuse or neglect contact the DCFS 24/7 hotline: 855-323-3237. For more information, visit dcfs.utah.gov.
