HOW TO BECOME A VOLUNTEER

 

Important Announcement Button

EFFECTIVELY IMMEDIATELY, all public schools will use both Raptor and VIPS tracking. 

Raptor will be used for background clearance. 

The VIPS tracking system will be used for application completion and recording volunteer hours.

ALL VOLUNTEERS AND VISITORS MUST SCAN IN/OUT THROUGH THE RAPTOR SYSTEM

PRIOR TO PASSING THE FRONT DESK AND GOING ON CAMPUS.

Hours are to be logged in on the VIPS Count tracking system computer. If you are not in the VIPS Count tracking system, please fill out an application on the VIPS Count tracking computer system and continue to log hours there. 

If you feel that there are discrepancies, please contact your school’s coordinator.
