School Crossing Guard Shortages

Posted January 17, 2023

The City is experiencing a shortage of crossing guards and are currently struggling to cover all locations. They are doing their best to fill these gaps; however, the program may have unforeseen vacancies due to guards calling in for same-day coverage. 

The priority is to cover the no-control intersections first. Control locations include intersections with traffic signals, intersection pedestrian signals (IPS) and all-way stops.  We will cover these locations if we can.  

The City’s website has some helpful tips for crossing at traffic signals.  Following is the internal listing of all locations, noting those with no-control and control intersections. 2023 January 16 ASCG listing

Please note that effective January 17, 2023, and until further notice, the adult school crossing guard location, Edinburgh at Youngman/Ironwood will be reduced to one adult guard in the afternoon until service levels improve.  The morning coverage remains the same.
