Volunteers In Public Schools (VIPS)

Houston ISD requires that all adult participants in school activities be registered with the school district.  All volunteers must pass an annual criminal background check before they can participate as a volunteer.

  • Returning Volunteers:
    • Please show your picture ID to the front desk to become ACTIVE for the current school year.
  • First-time Volunteers:
    • Register online at www.houstonisd.org/vipslogin
    • Once you have registered, you must go in person to the school of interest and show proof of identification
    • Identification information will go into our database for processing by the Volunteer Coordinator at each campus
    • The criminal history background check can take 2-3 weeks to complete
    • Once you are CLEARED to volunteer, you are eligible to volunteer throughout HISD
