Volunteering & Chaperoning

PISD states that ALL volunteers complete the district Volunteer Background Check EACH YEAR and clearance is necessary before being allowed to volunteer in any capacity (including field trips, classroom, parties, etc.).


Click here to complete your background check!


  • It takes up to 2 weeks (sometimes more) to be cleared, so please complete it soon if you plan to volunteer.
  • Field Trips: Parents who do not have a cleared background check on file may not volunteer to chaperone other students but may attend field trips with their own student.

Change of Clothes

Accidents happen (lunch spills, fall in the mud, etc.)! Please keep a change of clothes in your child's backpack at all times. Be sure to change the clothes out with the season.
