Multiple Dubbo schools are set to benefit from the state government's first-round roll out of crossing supervisors known as "lollipop people".
Member for the Dubbo electorate Dugald Saunders says they are "so important in helping keep our youngest road users safe".
"Dubbo South Public School will be getting a supervisor, which is great, but to have supervision at the Sheraton Road site, which incorporates St John's Primary School and Dubbo Christian School, is a big win," he said.
"That area also incorporates St Johns College, and anyone with kids in that area knows how dangerous and chaotic it can get."
NSW Education Minister Sarah Mitchell is encouraging "dedicated people interested in serving their community" as crossing supervisors to keep watch for job ads at https://iworkfor.nsw.gov.au/.
The state government is rolling out 300 lollipop people across three years instead of four.
It has "changed requirements" to allow more schools to qualify for a crossing supervisor.
Minister for Regional Transport and Roads Paul Toole said previously a school crossing had to be used by 300 cars per hour in the morning and afternoon as well as at least 50 students to be eligible for a supervisor.
"We've changed the requirements to enable more schools to qualify for a crossing supervisor as they now only need to meet one of the criteria," he said.
