School Crossing Guard Program

DC School Crossing Guard at work

DDOT's School Crossing Guards protect the safety of students who walk, bike, or take transit to school. School crossing guards help students safely cross hazardous intersections en route to the school building and work in conjunction with school monitors, school security, parking enforcement officers, roadway traffic operations patrols, and police officers.

Check out this interactive map to find out where school crossing guards are assigned across all eight wards.

Request a New School Crossing Guard

To request a new School Crossing Guard, school principals should download the "School Crossing Guard Request Instructions" and the "School Crossing Guard Request Form" and submit to DDOT. DDOT will evaluate each request and assign School Crossing Guards based on priority and availability of resources.
