School safety patrols are trained student volunteers responsible for enforcing drop-off and pick-up procedures for students using any form of transportation to get to school. Student safety patrols may assist students as they cross the street but they do not stop vehicular traffic; instead they look for breaks in traffic and direct students to cross.
According to the National Safe Routes Clearinghouse, “student safety patrols… [increase] safety for students and traffic flow efficiency for parents. Having a student safety patrol program at a school requires approval by the school and a committed teacher or parent volunteer to coordinate the student trainings and patrols.”
The Crossing Guard program is open to 6th, 7th, and 8th graders. Students interested in participating in the program would need to complete a class taught by Jordan Officer Jeff Strack.
