Job Description for School Crossing Guard
School crossing guards are responsible for ensuring the safe passing of children at the busiest hours of the day, as they are in charge of stopping traffic at any given moment to allow children to cross on their way to school. They may work at any level of grade school, from pre-school all the way to high school.Read More...
A high school diploma or equivalent is often a minimum requirement for this position, and a college degree is not necessary. School crossing guards should have excellent vision, corrected or not, and prior cross-guarding experience is highly beneficial. Of course, they must work well with children, as much of their job involves interacting with students and helping them get to school.
School crossing guards work in the morning hours when school is starting and the middle afternoon when the school-day ends. They may be required to work during lunch hours, as well. This position can be very rewarding for those who love working with children and want to help ensure their safety on a daily basis.
