(5) Setting forth specific physical and other criteria for selecting school patrol members and providing adequate training.
(6) Observing patrollers during inclement weather, hours of semidarkness and emergencies.
In addition, schools should periodically conduct a complete review of the entire school patrol program, including the following:
