The Education Authority (EA) has considered removing all “lollipop men and women” in an effort to save money.
However EA board members regarded that proposal – and other potentially controversial savings measures – as “unpalatable”.
The board also decided any decision to make such cuts should be down to the Department of Education (DE).
The revelation comes in a letter from the EA to the department seen by BBC News NI.
It states that the EA faces an estimated funding gap of £58m in 2018/19.
