Become a Volunteer

 
The New Caney Independent School District values the contributions made by its many volunteers who diligently work to support our outstanding students, teachers, and programs. It is our goal to provide a safe environment for our students and visitors.

Advantages to becoming an NCISD volunteer:

 
  • Make new friends and build relationships with students, campus staff, and other volunteers
  • Always be aware of the events and activities on your child’s campus
  • Volunteering can provide career experience and develop job skills
  • A sense of pride knowing you are making a positive difference in people’s lives
  • Be a positive role model for your children by showing them what it means to be service-oriented and active in one’s community
  • A chance to be involved in the school planning process - schools are continually looking for committed community members to help create and evaluate campus programs
  • You can set your own schedule. Volunteering is ideal for stay at home parents, grandparents, retired community members, businessmen and women. Volunteering allows you to connect with your community when it’s most convenient.

How long does it take NCISD to process the criminal history/background checks?
The criminal history/background check usually takes about 2-3 weeks to complete.
 
Does it cost anything to become a volunteer?
No, though there are costs associated with the criminal history/background check, NCISD does not pass the charges on to the volunteers.
 
My child/grandchild has a field trip coming up. Do I need to become a NCISD volunteer to attend?
It is recommended that all volunteers including parents, grandparents or guardians who wish to participate in field trips, 
field day, carnivals, etc., become a NCISD designated volunteer. Parents can show up and accompany their child’s class on most school-sponsored field trips without needing to be a volunteer (exceptions would be tours with limited seating). Becoming a volunteer ahead of time will allow you to better assist teachers by being able to chaperone small groups of students and possibly ride the school bus.
 
My child/grandchild has a class party coming up. Do I need to become a NCISD volunteer to attend?
No, becoming a volunteer is not necessary to attend class parties.
 
My child/grandchild has an assembly, performance or concert coming up. Do I need to become a NCISD volunteer to attend?
Parents, grandparents or guardians who wish to attend student performances, assemblies, or conferences with teachers or 
administrators do not need to be volunteers.
