Prevention and At-Risk Programs staff support accountability, social justice, and system practices for each student. A student-focused, data driven, systemic practice for all prevention work allows students to engage in an educational experience that results in the preparation and social capital necessary for college and career success and full participation in a global society.
The mission of our team is to work systemically to provide supports to increase student access and reduce barriers which prevent students from experiencing success in school. Prevention and At-Risk Programs provide resources and supports in the schools in the areas of attendance, bullying, child abuse, gangs, human trafficking, substance abuse, and suicide, built on a foundation of equity, trauma-informed care, and restorative practices. By promoting wellness for the whole child, this team contributes to the Utah State Board of Education's vision of preparing each child to be college, career, and community ready upon graduation.
