    Volunteer

    In the interest of children's safety and well-being, state law and district policy require that all Dallas ISD volunteers (students between age 13-17 and District Employees are exempt) complete the district's volunteer application which includes a Criminal Record Check. Applications must be renewed each school year. The background screening report can take up to 72 hours to process.  While you wait, complete the 10 minutes online orientation complete with e-signature for easy documentation. 

     
     
    At schools with strong community engagement teachers have higher levels of job satisfaction, and students are more motivated and have higher educational aspirations.  

    Whatever your skills, interests, or availability we've got an opportunity for you.
