JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office is looking to employ 31 School Crossing Guards throughout the city to assist elementary school children in traveling to and from school safely for the upcoming school year.

School Crossing Guards are part-time employees, who work one hour in the morning and one hour in the afternoon for a maximum of 10 hours a week and receive $10.75 an hour. It is preferred that the applicant’s home address be in a reasonable proximity to the location of the position, to avoid excessive and costly travel time.

Once selected, applicants must pass a background check and drug screening, and complete training. They must also pass an exam following training. Please note: Screening is taking longer due to adherence with COVID-19 protocols.
