Volunteers in Public Schools (VIPS)
Seguin ISD is committed to making it easy to become involved in education and be a part of the Volunteers in Public Schools (VIPS) program. No special skills are needed, although volunteers are encouraged to share any talents or interests they have.

Volunteers cannot replace the teachers or administrators, but they can supervise students as they arrive and depart the school grounds and during recess.  They can plan or accompany teachers and students on field trips, introduce students to their own special talents, tutor students with extra needs, decorate the classrooms, help students plant a school garden and organize fundraising events for special school needs. While they are helping the school, these volunteers can make great strides in helping our Seguin ISD community and our Seguin ISD students realize their potential.

Being involved in the public schools doesn't have to mean traveling to the school and working with students during the school day. There are plenty of things parents and community members can do to support schools. One important way is to make sure that you attend academic events, school athletic, or cultural events. Here are more examples of how you can support our Seguin ISD schools:

 

  • Collect and send in materials for a classroom project
  • Help make costumes, scenery or props
  • Invite a class to your work site for a field trip
  • Join an SVPO or a Booster Club    

 

Step 1: Complete the VIPS Profile

  • Complete the online profile
    • Please note, a copy of a valid government issued identification card must be attached to the downloaded volunteer form and DPS Verification form.
    • Return the volunteer form, DPS Verification, and Copy of Valid government issued identification card to Seguin ISD Community Service, 1221 E. Kingsbury St. Seguin, TX 78155.
    • Please allow up to two weeks for processing.
    • Once your application has been reviewed and your background check has been approved, you will be contacted to begin the next step.

 

Step 2: You will be contacted by Yvonne De La Rosa, Seguin ISD Marketing/Media Support Specialist.

Step 3: Meet with designated sponsor, booster and/or faculty and staff.

Step 4: Enjoy being a VIPS and Thank You!
