The Board of Trustees is concerned about the safety of students as they walk to and from school. The Board desires that crossing guards be provided to help elementary children cross busy streets.

The Superintendent or designee shall periodically examine traffic patterns within elementary school attendance areas in order to identify locations where crossing assistance may be needed.

The Superintendent or designee shall seek reimbursement for the cost of these guards from the city, county, or other sources. If reimbursement is not forthcoming, the cost of providing crossing guards may be included in the district budget.

(cf. 3100 - Budget)
