Volunteer Procedures

AISD that requires all classroom volunteers to have training and background checks.

A. Criminal Background Check
In order to volunteer in a position where you work directly with our students, you must have a full background check (Criminal convictions larger than class C misdemeanors).

To complete the background check:

Go to http://www.austinpartners.org/
Click “Volunteer” button at the top of the page
Under Search By School, select Doss
Click on the appropriate volunteer opportunity
Enter your email address twice
Click “Register”
You will then receive an email with conformation and any additional instructions

It takes a week or two to get results. If you have been screened for Read Naturally or the fifth grade field trip, or if you are a district employee, you do not have to do this again. Notification that the background check is complete will come from AustinPartners.org through email.

B. Volunteer Training
In order to cover a class without a teacher present, you also need to go through a quick and simple training. The training will be done by the principal. She will simply go over policies for what to do if a child gets sick or if there were a fire alarm and you needed to evacuate the building, and other things like how and when to use the phones, etc.

C. Volunteer Hours
Please track and report your volunteer hours.  It is very important that we track and report our volunteer hours to Austin Partners in Education.  They submit our volunteer hours to AISD, who uses this data to secure grant money.  But we need your help!

The best way to track your volunteer hours is through our Raptor System.  Please always sign in and sign out when you are volunteering on campus.

For the many hours you volunteer at home or off campus, please use the attached Volunteer Activity Report to track your time. At the end of your event, please add up the hours you have logged and email the TOTAL hours to the PIE Chair. If you have any questions about volunteer hours, please contact the PIE Chair.

Thank you!
