Event description

Description

Please join us for Crossing Guard Training: NOACA and the Cuyahoga County Board of Health are pleased to bring ODOT's Active Transportation Academy to Northeast Ohio.

Description: Adult school crossing guards play an important role in the lives of children who walk or bicycle to school. They help children safely cross the street at key locations. They also remind drivers of the existence of pedestrians. The presence of adult school crossing guards can lead to more parents feeling comfortable about their children walking or bicycling to school.

While the primary role of an adult school crossing guard is to guide children safely across the street, children also remain responsible for their own safety. In this manner, a crossing guard plays another key function as a role model in helping children develop the skills necessary to cross streets safely at all times.

This course provides knowledge, as well as hands-on experience with crossing guard demonstrations and practice in the classroom and on roads. It explains how to control traffic to create safe gaps for students to cross the street to and from school, and other personal, knowledge, communication, and skill-based responsibilities of an adult school crossing guard.

What you will learn:

  • Instruction and resources on the importance and responsibilities of crossing guards

  • Knowledge of correct equipment usage and crossing procedures

  • Evaluation of an individual’s ability to be an effective cross guard

  • Suggestions on recruitment and structure to meeting student and community needs

Additional information will be sent upon registration.
