Volunteering in LEISD Schools
Volunteer applications are deactivated every summer. Volunteers must reapply for the 2019-2020 school year. All volunteer applications must be completed through App-garden.Within our schools we have Volunteers and Visitors. A Visitor is a person that is allowed to attend campus functions and/or lunch with their child. You would not need to complete a Volunteer form for these functions, merely check-in with your driver’s license in the front office of your child’s school.Volunteers are given an assignment or task dealing directly with children other than their own while on campus or school sponsored trips. Volunteers must complete this form and have an annual background check completed by the District on file. Please proceed with this application if you wish to volunteer at your child’s school.
Our students benefit from the many volunteer hours that our parents and community members invest in our schools. For the safety of our students, we require all volunteers to complete a volunteer application and we run a name-based, state-wide criminal history record check on all applicants. The background check must be completed and approved before volunteering. Parent/guardian volunteers will be also be processed through the district’s Raptor visitor system, which scans your driver's license each time you come to campus. All volunteers are required to reapply each year.
To be a volunteer at your child's school, follow these simple steps:
- Complete the Volunteer Application
- The background check should take less than a week. Once applicants are approved, an email confirmation will be sent and they are cleared to volunteer in our schools.
- Once the volunteer's application is approved, an email confirmation will be sent to the volunteer to confirm their acceptance.
Please note, only one application is necessary per school year regardless of how many campuses you wish to volunteer.
