Get Ready for the 2022-2023 School Year
School is back in session, meaning a new group of students have the opportunity to become leaders in the AAA School Safety Patrol program. Check out the latest resources and announcements below to support the year ahead for your program.
Update Your Enrollment
Schools are encouraged to re-enroll every year so we can actively support the incoming students by providing new equipment and resources to help your program run smoothly. Schools can visit the registration page to re-enroll and order equipment in two minutes or less.
We’re actively seeking new ways AAA can help your Patrol thrive. We’re thrilled to share two additional offerings, new for the 2022-2023 school year:
- Patrol Advisor Grants: AAA is thrilled to introduce our new grant program to support Title 1 schools. If selected, a school will receive a $5,000 grant to help fund an AAA School Safety Patrol Advisor to compensate for their time, participation, and efforts in the program. Applications for the 2022-23 AAA School Safety Patrol Advisor Grant are due by September 26th. Grantees will be informed on a rolling basis. Apply and learn more about the Patrol Advisor Grant program here.
- Patrol Operation Guide Checklist: AAA has developed an Operation Guide Checklist to support schools and Patrol Advisors in starting and running the AAA School Safety Patrol Program at their schools. The Operation Guide Checklist organizes the tasks Patrol Advisors and schools can do to run their program. Download the Operation Guide Checklist on this page.
