The Cleveland Division of Police is taking applications for school crossing guards.
The city is responsible for hiring crossing guards. Applicants can be referred by Cleveland City Council members or contact the Cleveland police.
Crossing guards help children safely cross streets to get to their public, parochial and charter schools, typically working from 7 to 8 a.m. and 2 to 3 p.m. on school days.
“Crossing guards serve an important function in our community by keeping its most valued asset safe – our children,” said Mayor Frank G. Jackson. “Adults looking to give back to the community or who enjoy working with children are encouraged to apply.”
The guards are paid $20.50 a day and are eligible for health care through the city. About 40 of 400 crossing guard positions are available.
