School transportation services; designation or registration
The school route services are set up by the municipalities and the authorities responsible for transporting schoolchildren on their own responsibility. Schoolchildren can register as crossing guards and school bus crossing guards, and adults can volunteer as school route assistants and school bus attendants.
The State Ministries of the Interior and Education and Cultural Affairs recommend that local authorities employ crossing guards and school route assistants, and that the authorities responsible for school transport employ school bus crossing guards and school bus assistants.
The school transport services are set up by the municipalities and the authorities responsible for transporting schoolchildren on their own responsibility. Several municipalities or authorities responsible for school transport can set up a joint school transport service. Before setting up a school transport service, the school, the parents' council, the local traffic safety officer, the police and the local traffic watch must be consulted. The Landesverkehrswacht Bayern e. V. and the local traffic watch groups will support the local authorities and, as far as possible, provide the necessary equipment.
Schoolchildren can be deployed as crossing guards and school bus crossing guards. Suitable adults are being sought to volunteer as school crossing guards or school bus attendants.
School bus helpers or school bus attendants receive weatherproof yellow warning clothing and a trowel so that they can be recognized as such.
An appreciation of the activity can take place in the context of school events or similar in a suitable way. You may also receive an expense allowance from the municipality for your voluntary work.
During the activity itself, as well as on the direct way to your place of work and back, school route helpers or school bus attendants enjoy legal accident insurance protection. This insurance is free of charge.
Pupils can only be deployed in the school route service if they volunteer, are at least 13 years old - in exceptional cases 12 years old, e.g. at Teilhauptschulen I -, are personally suitable for the school route service and have a written declaration of consent from their legal guardians. Suitable pupils are nominated by the head teacher in consultation with the class teachers and the traffic teacher.
In order to be able to perform the honorary office as a school route helper or school bus attendant, you must be of age and physically fit, reliable and punctual. In addition, you must be able to stand outside in all weathers and always remain calm and on top of things, even under stress or in difficult situations. Often it is the parents and relatives of school children who ensure a safe way to school with their commitment. However, any adult who meets the requirements described above can help with the school crossing service.
Appropriate students are nominated by the principal in consultation with the classroom teachers and the traffic teacher.
Adults can register for the honorary activity.
School crossing helpers or school bus attendants come to their place of work near the elementary school in the morning before school starts and/or at lunchtime at the end of lessons for about half an hour at a time. They help the schoolchildren cross the street at traffic lights, crosswalks or traffic helper crossings. A location can also be supervised by several school crossing helpers, who divide the days or times among themselves. If possible, we will assign you to a crossing near your home. Before your first assignment, you will receive a briefing from the police. During school vacations, no school crossing guard service is required.
