The SDIS Best Practices Program was designed to assist special districts with implementing best practices to mitigate risk in areas of high exposure. Your district can receive credits on its property/casualty insurance contributions and can take up to 10% off your district’s general liability, auto liability, and property insurance contributions for the 2023 policy year. The following information outlines the five credit opportunities for this year’s program.

To receive credit, a district representative must complete the Best Practices Survey (located online on the SDIS Insurance Site) and click the Save button at the upper right-hand corner of the screen. Credit will only be awarded in a category when a box within that section is checked. If you cannot answer “yes” to at least one question within that category, credit will not be recorded. The survey must be submitted by a district representative who will verify completion of the credit requirements within the survey. Training credits taken by members are not automatically updated in the Best Practices Survey and must be manually checked off by the member. Please note, each district is responsible for completing their own survey online.


If you have any questions regarding the Best Practices Program or need help completing it online, please contact Jaime Keeling at or 800.285.5461 ext. 122.
