The role of the AAA School Safety Patrol is to organize and teach dedicated student volunteers to direct their peers in safely interacting with school traffic.

  • AAA School Safety Patrol members are school-sponsored student volunteers from upper elementary grades, middle and junior high schools.
  • Patrollers direct children, not traffic. As school-age leaders in traffic safety, patrol members teach other students about traffic safety on a peer-to-peer basis. They also serve as examples for younger children, who look up to them.

AAA School Safety Patrol members:

  • Complete training in traffic safety.
  • Protect students from hazards of crossing roads and highways on their way to and from school.
  • Assist bus drivers in safely transporting students to and from school.
  • Teach fellow students about traffic safety.
  • Serve in other leadership roles under the direction of school officials.
