On March 4, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors will vote on an ordinance that would allow a middle school to have a crossing guard. Rosemont Middle School has experienced a dramatic improvement in traffic flow and pedestrian safety since a crossing guard was added to the intersection of Los Amigos and Rosemont Avenue, reports members of the CV Town Council. This ordinance, if approved, will make a positive difference in the safety of middle school students as they walk to school.
The March 4 agenda item reads:
[Item] 28. Recommendation: Adopt the Revised Warrants for Assigning Adult Crossing Guards policy for the County Adult Crossing Guard Program to include school crossings servicing middle schools in the official warrants and guidelines relating to authorization of adult crossing guard services for unincorporated County jurisdiction. (Department of Public Works) ADOPT (14-0890)
