Suicide Prevention

The Appleton Area School District will seek means to help students who are considered at risk for suicide, and provide support for staff and peers affected by student suicide. A youth suicide prevention program shall be used by District staff.

District staff are in positions to recognize students who are at risk for suicide; under no circumstances should this be kept confidential. State Statute provides immunity from civil liability for staff members who work to prevent suicide.

The District believes that suicide prevention is a responsibility shared by the various segments of the community including family, community agencies, related medical services, and the schools.
