Suicide prevention training provided by ASBSD and SafeSchools

SafeSchools offers South Dakota school districts a one hour suicide awareness and prevention training course, which meets the state’s training requirement for the initial certificate and renewal certificate of a teacher, administrator or other educational professional.


The Youth Suicide Awareness and Prevention training requirement comes from the passage of 2016’s Senate Bill 129, which establishes certain suicide awareness and prevention training requirements for certain school employees.



Along with the suicide awareness and prevention training, ASBSD and SafeSchools have partnered to bring all member districts the opportunity to automate their staff training and policy administration through a comprehensive online library of courses covering important school safety and compliance topics.

Members of ASB Workers’ Comp and ASB Property/Liability Funds have access to the training system AT NO COST and all other ASBSD members receive the program at A 50 PERCENT SAVINGS.


ASBSD members can inquire about the suicide awareness and prevention training and get started with SafeSchools Training by contacting Matt Flett at or 605-773-2515.
