Crossing Guards

In 2022, as every year, the Support Services Bureau worked cooperatively with the Joplin R-VIII School District to employ 11 part-time crossing guards. These personnel are placed strategically throughout the city to ensure school-aged children can safely cross busy roads and intersections while walking to school. Each Crossing Guard is equipped and trained for the critical tasks they perform. Every year a study is conducted in conjunction with public works and the school district to ensure the crossing guards are placed in the most effective manner possible.
