Volunteer in the Public Schools,
There will be numerous volunteer opportunities through the PTO as well as through your child's cohort and club activities. To volunteer at EIHS for on-campus activities and field trips, you will need to register through VIPS (HISD's Volunteer in the Public Schools program).
HISD requires that all volunteers register online in the Raptor volunteer management system and agree to the annual background check for each school year. VIPS approval expires each academic year on July 31st. Last year's VIPS approval will not renew for the next year.
Please follow the steps below to become VIPS-approved:
Step 2: Complete the entire Online Application in Raptor Volunteer Management System and submit your application.
Step 3: Once your application is submitted, you will receive a confirmation email to your email address.
Step 4: Within 2-3 weeks, an email will be sent to your email address informing you of the status of your VIPS background check.
Step 5: If you have not heard back from the Raptor Volunteer Management System in 2-3 weeks, contact your school for more information.
Step 6: You are eligible to volunteer in HISD schools once you have received your VIPS approval.
