Volunteer at Our Schools

Volunteer Team LogoThank you for your interest in volunteering at our schools. Volunteers are recognized as an important part of student success. Whatever your skills, interests, or availability we’ve got an opportunity for you to impact the students and staff of Brazosport ISD. Below are steps to get you started.

Steps to Join the BISD Volunteer Team:

Step 1: 
Click on the 4BISDVolunteers graphic below to begin the registration process.

  • If you are a returning volunteer, you will need to complete this process annually, so click ‘Returning Volunteer’ to log in and complete the registration. (Remember if you are a registered user of Parent Self Serve or have used the student online registration-Please use your user ID and password to login under “Returning Volunteer”)
  • If you are a new volunteer, click ‘New Volunteer’ and complete the registration form.
  • If you are a former employee you will apply using option #3. Note: Current BISD employees do not need to use this process. You are already approved.

**Note that a background check is required of all potential volunteers. Once the background check is complete continue to Step 2. (please allow 2 weeks for processing)



Once you are approved, you will receive an electronic email notification. You can also check the status of your volunteer application by logging back into the volunteer portal as a Returning Volunteer (option #1). The system will show you the status of your application. You also have the option to update or remove your application.

Step 2:

Contact or visit the campus you wish to serve to make sure your information is in their Volunteer Data Bank and to inquire about volunteer opportunities. If you want to inquire about opportunities in the District, feel free to contact Sharon Ritchie, Brazosport ISD Volunteer Liaison at 979-730-7000 for volunteering options.

**In order to ensure the safety of our students, local board policy dictates that BISD shall perform a criminal history record check on all employees as well as substitutes and volunteers. [See Texas Education Code 22.083(a)(b), Board policy DC (Legal), and GKG (Legal)].

Additionally, Brazosport ISD reserves the right to terminate volunteer status in the event that a volunteer violates the Educator’s Code of Ethics, Board Policy DH (Exhibit)

In addition, Education Code 22.053 states, “A volunteer who is serving as a direct service volunteer in the district is immune from civil liability, to the same extent as professional employee of a school district under Section 22.051.”

The information obtained by the district concerning criminal background history remains confidential and is kept in a separate file in the Human Resources Office.

VOLUNTEERS MUST RE-APPLY EVERY SCHOOL YEAR
