Crossing GuardEvery day throughout the school year, a team of dedicated people spread out across Madison to help make sure our kids get to school safely. These fine folks stop and direct traffic, greet kids and families with a smile, and help build a culture of safety on our streets. They are our City of Madison Crossing Guards, and they want you to join their ranks.

We recognize the critical role that crossing guards play in ensuring the well-being of our youngest residents, and are actively seeking individuals who are passionate about making a positive impact to join our essential team. As we strive to create a safer city, we urge individuals who share our passion for the well-being of our children to consider becoming a crossing guard.

No prior experience is required to become a crossing guard. The City will provide uniforms and comprehensive paid training to equip staff with the necessary tools to excel in this important role.

In addition to the opportunity to make a vital difference in our community, crossing guards receive:

  • $18.91/hr. to start and work 10-15 hours per week.
  • Work is Monday-Friday throughout the school year. Winter, spring, and summer breaks are off!
  • Crossing guards earn paid sick leave, and qualify for a free annual Metro bus pass. Permanent grossing guards also receive a robust annual uniform clothing allowance.

Apply now! The first round of interviews will be mid-August, with training anticipated in late August (approximately one week before school starts). Hiring will occur continuously until all of the positions are filled. Do not delay; apply now to be a part of this dedicated group as the City prepares for the fall return to school.
