Volunteering in PfISD

  • Who made a difference in your life? Can you do the same for a child in PfISD?

    Thank you for your willingness to give your time and talent to serve as a volunteer in our schools. Your personal commitment provides our students with a valuable role model of responsible citizenship and impacts student achievement in a positive way, whether directly or indirectly.

    National research shows that it is important for our youth to have at least three non-parent adults whom they can trust. With your help, our young people can overcome adversity, succeed in school, and become community leaders.

    Volunteers are a much-appreciated and highly respected group of people who make up a very important part of our educational team. The educators and staff have witnessed firsthand the magic of volunteer partnerships between our community and its schools. Volunteers can read to students, tutor in a particular subject area, work in the library, or assist with special events. There is almost no end to opportunities as a volunteer.

    Whether you serve as a parent, grandparent, business representative, or community member, your participation in all volunteer endeavors is essential in developing our greatest asset - our youth. We salute you, not only for your interest but for your action! We hope your experience as a volunteer will be rewarding and that your life will be richer for the time you spend with our children.

  • Volunteer Application


  • Volunteers are required to fill out a new Application every school year.

    The Volunteer Application is the same as the District's Employment Application. Applicants must use their legal name as it appears on their driver’s license or passport. You MUST have a Social Security Number to complete the online form.

    Volunteers must apply two (2) - four (4) weeks before the anticipated event to ensure participation in student activities and field trips.

How to Complete a Volunteer Application

  • Pflugerville ISD requires all volunteers to complete a background check. Section 22.083 of the Education Code authorizes a school district to conduct a background check to inquire into individuals' criminal history record information from any law enforcement or criminal justice agency on applications, employees, or volunteers of the District.

    Instructions for completing the volunteer background check form:

    All district volunteers are required to complete an application and consent to a background check prior to volunteering.
