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. (You can begin this process by filling out the online form at the VIPS HourTracker).
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.
