The Provo School District is re-evaluating its parent notification policy, after a girl, 14, went missing this week...and her parents weren't called until the school day was nearly over.

District spokesman, Dr. Greg Hudnall, says budget shortages have reduced prompt notifications as a priority, over the years.

But changes are being promised, in the wake of this week's incident.

Starting next fall, the district promises to have a protocol in place to ensure notification calls are made no later than mid-morning.
