Crossing Guard Workshops
The Maricopa Association of Governments works with cities and towns to improve road safety. Crossing Guard Workshops provide basic education and training to school crossing guards. This training is essential to ensure that crossing guards do not compromise the safety of K-8 school children or themselves while performing duties. The intent of this MAG workshop and the associated print materials and video is to provide basic safety training for all school crossing guards as a regional road safety initiative. All K-8 schools may utilize this workshop to train their school crossing guards. The responsibility remains with each school for hiring, training, and defining when and where crossing guards are to be on duty.
2022 Crossing Guard Training Workshop
This year’s training will be held in person. Due to the risks to public health caused by the possible spread of the COVID-19 virus at public gatherings, please note that attendees are welcome to wear a mask as they feel comfortable. A high quality recording will be available on this webpage after the in-person event takes place.
MAG is inviting all school crossing guards and any interested school officials that serve school districts to register to attend the in-person Crossing Guard Workshop that will be held on August 2, 2022, at Washington High School in Phoenix, AZ.
