• VIPS
     
    VIPS are HISD volunteers. Each year, thousands of parents, students and community partners support students and teachers by volunteering their time.

    How can I become a VIPS?
    All volunteers must register online and pass a criminal background check before they can participate as a volunteer. Please follow the steps below to become a VIPS:

    Step 1: Register online at www.houstonisd.org, stay on the homepage, and click on the VIPS login under the Parents link section.

    Step 2: Once you have registered, you must go in person to the school of interest and show proof of identification.


    Step 3: Identification information will go into our database for processing by the
    Volunteer Coordinator at each campus.

    Step 4: The criminal history background check can take 2-3 weeks to complete.

    Step 5: Once you are CLEARED to volunteer, you are eligible to volunteer throughout HISD.
