Background Check Required to Volunteer

Because the safety of our students and staff is our top priority, those wanting to become MISD volunteers must go through the following security measures before serving in the district. These procedures must be followed in order to volunteer on ANY campus and/or chaperone an event or field trip. Volunteers must pass a criminal background check ANNUALLY (starts over in July).

  1. Volunteers must provide a driver’s license or another form of identification containing the person’s photograph issued by an entity of the U.S. government to verify identity.
  2. Volunteers must pass a criminal background check. MISD uses a reputable third-party company to obtain criminal background checks. The form asks for a social security number to conduct the background check. Please note that credit scores and credit reports are not obtained during the background check process. The information given will only be used to determine criminal history. MISD cannot require parties who are not employed with the district to provide social security information. If an applicant opts out, the background check process may take longer in order to cross-check information.

Save the Date: Media Madness

Save the date: WBE PTA will be hosting the Texas PTA Program MEDIA MADNESS on Monday, November 6th at 6:00pm at WBE. "Television, i-Pods, i-Pads, laptops and smart-phones…Today’s kids are exposed to an average of seven hours of “screen-time” each and every day, and the impact of those media messages can shape many of their perceptions and actions. Media Madness provides parents and caregivers the tools to successfully manage their children’s “screen time”, effectively monitor media messages and content, and realistically modify your approach as children grow and technology advances."

Put it on your calendar now, you won't want to miss this!!!

More info will come as it gets closer.
