In Red Oak ISD, we love our parent volunteers! If you would like to become involved in activities ranging from field trips to mentoring students and organizing classroom parties, please sign up to be a volunteer.
Red Oak ISD uses an online process that includes a volunteer database and allows teachers to post opportunities throughout the school year. You may sign up for as many events as you would like.
New volunteers must complete an application to allow us to run a criminal background check.
Returning Volunteers, who registered this past school year, only need to UPDATE their current account.
As part of our district policy, we require a periodic update to the background check that we have on file for all active volunteers. This update is required to be performed once each year. This means that we will be submitting for background screening the information we currently have on your volunteer record.
We need your assistance to make this compliance requirement work smoothly. Therefore, we are requesting the following:
- If you WILL BE VOLUNTEERING during the coming school year and you know your volunteer information is accurate and up-to-date, you do not need to take any further action. You consent to Red Oak ISD using your information for background screening purposes and understand we will use the results in determining final approval to volunteer in our schools.
- If you WILL BE VOLUNTEERING during the coming school year BUT your information (Name, Address, AKA/Aliases, Registered School/Campus, etc.) is not up-to-date on your record, please sign-in to your account and update those details immediately. (This is especially important if your student has changed campus. You will want to be notified of volunteer opportunities for his/her new campus.) If you do not remember your Username or Password, click the “I Cannot Login” button and we will send them to you. By updating your volunteer information, you also consent to Red Oak ISD using your information for background screening purpose and understand we will use the results in determining final approval to volunteer in our schools.
- If you WILL NOT BE VOLUNTEERING during the coming school year, use the button to the right to SIGN-IN to your volunteer account. You will need your Username and Password. If you do not remember your Username or Password, click the “I Cannot Login” button and we will send them to you. Once signed in, scroll to the bottom of the page and check the box for “Remove Me”. Then press the SAVE button to update your account. You will be excluded from the periodic background screening process and you will no longer be approved to volunteer in our schools. Should you decide later that you do wish to volunteer, you will need to re-register at that time.
It is important that you take action as requested above no later than August 17th so we can proceed with the background rescreening process for active volunteers. We will continue this process throughout the year depending on the expiration date of your current background screening. If you have any questions about the process or have any technical difficulties updating your account, please contact the Volunteer Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We appreciate your commitment to working with the students and staff in our schools. Your efforts are a crucial part of making education work at Red Oak ISD.
Parents and community members who are visiting campuses do not need to apply as volunteers. You will receive a visitor’s badge when you arrive on campus.
