Volunteer Information

The teachers, students and staff at Northwest ISD achieve many accomplishments throughout any given school year. Many of these accomplishments would be impossible without the dedication of the volunteers who sacrifice their valuable time and efforts in support of Northwest ISD. We constantly strive to develop and maintain a culture that promotes volunteerism within our district and campuses. This year we have more than 9,000 registered volunteers helping within the walls of our classrooms and campuses. 

Volunteers help our classroom teachers by allowing them to focus on what is most important, TEACHING!

Background checks must be completed annually to ensure the district has updated information on the volunteers in their schools. Please note that a background check can take up to 72 hours or more to be processed and cannot be done on the spot at the campus.
