Improving Student Patrols: A Guide.
National Commission on Safety Education, Washington, DC.
This guide outlines the benefits, operational considerations, and evaluation of the student safety patrol as an integral part of school activity which not only enriches the real-life learning of pupils but also helps prevent accidents. Several types of student patrols are discussed: building and grounds patrols, pupil transportation patrols, and pedestrian patrols. The major portion of the guide covers essential operational considerations such as: group planning; the varied roles of the administration, the safety education coordinator, the classroom teacher, and the student body; suggested policies concerning the selection, instruction, and services of patrol members; insignia and equipment; parental consent; and questions on liability of which a school needs to be aware. A final section on evaluation includes a chart designed to help the school faculty and staff construct a progress profile of the student patrol program. (SES)
