Volunteers in Public Schools (VIPS)

  • Logo for HEB ISD VIPS programThe Hurst-Euless-Bedford ISD and the HEB Council of PTAs created VIPS in 2001 to recruit and support volunteers who can provide hands-on assistance at our schools. The VIPS objective is to impact student achievement in a positive way, whether directly or indirectly.

    Our volunteers come from a variety of backgrounds. They may be members of a group that has adopted a school; grandparents of children in school; or individuals who want to give back to the community. Volunteers can read to students, tutor in a particular subject area, work in the library, or assist with special events. There is almost no end to opportunities in VIPS.

    All volunteers must pass a background check. (You can begin this process by filling out the online form at the VIPS HourTracker).

    Due to COVID-19, VIPS ID badges will be issued on an as-needed basis only. If you will be volunteering for a specific event or activity that requires you to have an ID badge, please submit this form: 2020-2021 VIPS ID Badge Request. You will be contacted by email within 7 days.

    VIPS is administered by the PR & Marketing Department. Please contact Rachael Metcalf for more information.

    Parents and patrons are vital partners in the educational process.
