VIPS Approval

Before volunteering at MIMS in any capacity you must register as a HISD Volunteer!

VIPS are HISD volunteers. Each year, thousands of parents, students, and community partners support HISD students and teachers by volunteering their time. VIPS represent all economic, ethnic, and educational backgrounds. They are caring individuals, who tutor students, serve as classroom assistants to teachers, provide enrichment and hands-on experience with computers, work in the library, clinic, office, cafeteria, and provide other support.

How can I become a VIPS?
All volunteers must register online each year and pass a criminal background check before they can participate as a volunteer. Please follow the steps below to become a VIPS:

Step 1: Register online by using the VIPS Approval Form link under the “Useful School Links” on the home page .
Step 2: Once you have registered take your proof of identification to the front office.
Step 3: Identification information will go into our database for processing and your criminal background check will be processed by HISD.
Step 4: The criminal history background check can take 2-3 weeks to complete.
Step 5: Once you are CLEARED to volunteer, you are eligible to volunteer .

What type of identification is accepted?
– Texas Driver’s License
– Official Passport
– Texas Identification Card
– Official U.S. Military ID
– Driver’s License (issued by any state in the U.S.)
– Resident Alien Card

Returning volunteers will need to show proof of an acceptable photo ID to the front office to verify and submit for the background check. Note: The returning volunteer will need to register each year with the VIPS process. Only volunteers with a Cleared status will be able to volunteer in HISD.
