Volunteer Hours/Background Check

NOTE: In order to volunteer at the school you will need to fill out a volunteer application and submit to a background check.


Prior to volunteering at the school, you will need to complete the volunteer application online at the VOLY website:


There are three steps to this process:

  1. Complete the online application. Be sure to check the box indicating that you consent to a background check in order to volunteer. You will need to consent to this background check every year in order to volunteer. You will receive an email from volunteer@fwisd.org when your application has been submitted.
  2. Once your application has been submitted, you will need to view the Orientation slides. You can find these on the website by clicking the “My Applications” tab and selecting “Orientation” on the left hand menu. When you reach the final slide, you will be prompted to enter your name and the current date to indicate that you have viewed the orientation documents.
  3. Finally, select “Background Check” from the left hand menu and complete the required information and click “Submit.”

You will receive a confirmation email from volunteer@fwisd.org once your background check is complete and your application has been approved. At this point you are able to volunteer on campus and manage your hours on the VOLY website.
