Volunteer General Information

Who are the volunteers?

Volunteers are parents, grandparents, representatives from the Sciencebusiness community, and other concerned and dedicated people who give generously of their time in the Klein schools to support the professional staff and enrich the educational experiences of more than 45,000 students. Since 1970 when the KISD Volunteer Program was created, volunteers have enhanced the schools by sharing their talents and resources.

What do volunteers do?

In the classrooms, volunteers serve as tutors, make special presentations, and read to students. In the school clinics, libraries, and office areas, volunteers provide clerical assistance. At the Wunderlich Farm complex, volunteers serve as docents who share our community’s history with students.

When do volunteers help?

Schools work with volunteers to match volunteers’ skills, interests, and time to school projects. Most volunteers serve during the school day. Some take home projects to complete at their leisure. Members of booster clubs often show their commitment after school hours and on the weekends at performances and competitions.

Where do volunteers help?

Volunteers serve in all KISD schools and at the Wunderlich Farm complex. Typically, parents and grandparents serve where their children and grandchildren attend school. Business and community members are matched with schools that need their support.

Volunteer Guidelines

  • A good volunteer is consistent, dependable, interested in making a difference, respectful and appreciative of teachers and students, and faithful to commitments.
  • Volunteers are role models for students in behavior, speech, and dress.
  • When persons are on duty as volunteers, the district requests that they dress in conformity with the teachers’ dress code.
  • Volunteers will sign a roster upon arrival at the school.This written record allows the school to know who is in the building and keep a record of volunteer hours.
  • Volunteers wear name badges provided by the school as a security measure and as recognition of the value the school places on its volunteers.
