Volunteer Application Process

ALL volunteers* must reapply each school year.

New and returning volunteers must submit an application each school year in order to volunteer on a Tyler ISD campus. Volunteers must be at least 18 years of age and have either a valid Texas Driver's License or Department of Public Safety Identification Card.

The Volunteer Application is only available online. For your convenience, there is a kiosk located in the lobby of the Administration Building at 1319 Earl Campbell Parkway.

Applications are processed on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Please allow 5-7 business days for processing. Approved volunteers will receive an email when the application process is complete.

All approved volunteers must check in through the campus front office and wear their Raptor badge (elementary and middle school grades) or hard badge (high school grades) at all times while volunteering on campus or at a school event. Please read the Sign In and Sign Out Procedures to familiarize yourself with these procedures. 

*Volunteer applications submitted through the Online Enrollment Process apply only to the parent completing the enrollment for their student(s). Additional parents or family members must go through the regular volunteer application process.

Tyler ISD requires persons who serve as school volunteers to submit to a criminal history check. All information is confidential. Approved volunteers will be issued a Volunteer Badge for the current school year. The badge must be displayed at all times while serving in this capacity. Tyler ISD reserves the right to determine volunteer status of an individual based on the following findings: assault, sexual misconduct, theft, DWI, criminal trespassing, any misconduct involving a minor, forgery, possession of controlled substances, or any acts that may be construed as moral turpitude.
