|Frequently Asked Questions
Where do parents or prospective volunteers apply to be a volunteer?
At the front office of any CHISD campus.
What is the process for before school (example: morning greeter) or after school (example: drill team volunteer) volunteers?
If a volunteer does a regular duty, such as a morning greeter or mentoring, they must still check in at the front office each time they volunteer. Anytime the volunteer will be interacting with students, they must have a temporary badge (issued through the Raptor system) to stick on their clothing. Volunteers who will be serving at district events after hours (i.e., working at a concession stand during athletic events) will be issued a colored badge to show that they are cleared to work in that capacity. All volunteers during school hours must use a temporary badge issued by the campus Raptor system.
How long does it take for processing volunteer applications?
At least 48 hours.
Who needs volunteer access?
Every person that is serving as a volunteer at any CHISD location or sponsored event.
Do Raptor paper badges need to be turned in?
Yes, volunteers should be turning in ID badges upon leaving the building.
Can former volunteers use the ID picture badges that were provided prior to the new process?
No. The picture badges issued prior to August 2009 can no longer be used. All volunteers starting 2010-2011 school year must have a Raptor badge while on a campus during school hours.
Which volunteers are issued badges in the 2010-2011 school year?
Only volunteers who will be serving on repeated occasions during after hours events (i.e., working in concession stands). Badges that are issued for after hours volunteering will not be honored during school hours. They will be a different color from employee badges. All volunteers requesting access during school hours MUST go through the front office and receive a temporary Raptor badge.
