DDOT's School Crossing Guard Program works to improve the safety for students who walk, bicycle, or take transit to school. The role of a school crossing guard is to help students to safely cross hazardous intersections en route to school. They are not to replace school monitors, school security, parking enforcement officers, roadway traffic operations patrols, or police officers.
DDOT is doing its part to provide a safe and efficient method for students to get to school. We hope you encourage all students to walk, bike or ride transit to school. This will help manage congestion and pollution in the District as well as improve safety for students and all pedestrians.`
