    Procedure for Volunteer Approval

    Each person shall be approved by the office of Human Resources prior to volunteering at a school building, event, field trip or any related WISD activity.

    Observation Students will follow the same process of approval as volunteers.

    Volunteers must fill out a volunteer application online. When applying be sure to indicate every campus you are interested in volunteering at.

    In accordance with the Texas Education Code, Section 22.083, Willis ISD may obtain criminal history record information on an individual who has indicated, in writing, an intention to serve as a volunteer. By submitting the volunteer application, you give WISD written consent to run a criminal history check using your name and other identifiers. The information obtained is strictly confidential and will be processed through the Willis ISD Human Resources Office.

    Campus principals and their designated campus volunteer coordinator will be notified of approved volunteers.

    Volunteers must receive approval each school year.
