Volunteering and Mentoring
School volunteer programs can enable teachers to personalize instruction, free teachers and other school personnel to meet students’ needs more effectively, broaden students' experiences, strengthen school-community understanding and relations, enhance home involvement, and enrich the lives of volunteers.
Each campus offers different opportunities for volunteers. Some examples include:
- Assisting in the front office
- Working with Designated Students in the Classroom
- Providing Additional Opportunities and Support such as recreation, enrichment, and tutoring
- Helping Enhance a Positive Climate Throughout the School – including"chores" such as assisting with supervision, contributing to campus "beautification," and helping to get materials ready
Other ways to get involved:
- Participating in campus organizations
- Serving as a parent representative on the district level or campus level planning committee and assisting in the development of educational goals and plans to improve student achievement
- Serving on the School Health Advisory Council, assisting the district in ensuring local community values are reflected in health education instruction
- Attending board meetings to learn more about district operations
Volunteers must pass a criminal history background check in order to ensure the safety of our students. Liberty Hill Independent School District is authorized by state law to obtain criminal history record information on individuals who intend to serve as volunteers for the district (Texas Education Code 22.083). Your personal information, as well as your criminal history record results, are strictly confidential. The background check is conducted through the Liberty Hill Independent School District Administration Office.
Contact your student's school campus to obtain additional information.
