Volunteers in Public Schools (VIPS)
The 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.
Once you have passed the background check process, contact the VIPS Program Liaison to have your volunteer ID badge made. Appointments may be scheduled:
- Online at HEB ISD VIPS ID Badge Appointments
- By Email by replying to your background check confirmation email
- By Phone at 817-399-2039
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.
