Eliminating the positions was on the table, but it looks like that now has changed.
Crossing guards and their supporters say they serve as the eyes and ears of the community to report suspicious activity.
For 25 years, Leanna Leonowicz has been protecting children at school crossings. She says she does it for the children.
But because of a budget shortfall in the city of Manitowoc, crossing guard jobs, including Leanne's, were put on the chopping block.
The city was hoping to cut $120,000 from the crossing guard program with new options including stop signs and using children to cross students instead of adults.
But now a loophole uncovered by the public property and safety committee, showing guards being paid for hours not worked, may save the program altogether.
