School Crossing Guards: State law does not require school districts to use crossing guards, but many voluntarily establish crossing guard programs to protect the health and safety of their students. In Coronado, the City pays 100% of the costs for school crossing guards, approximately $100,000 per year. Other California cities typically do not underwrite the costs of crossing guards. In response to concerns about student safety, the City in recent years has increased crossing guards at F on Third and Fourth streets. A crossing guard is present at both Third Street and F Avenue as well as at Fourth Street and F Avenue during both morning and afternoon student crossing times. This is in addition to crossing guards at the usual locations: Sixth Street and F Avenue and Seventh Street and Orange Avenue.
