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.

    Once you have passed the background check process, contact the VIPS Program Liaison to have your volunteer ID badge made. Appointments may be scheduled:

    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.
