Volunteering in the Schools
Welcome to our Volunteer website. We are happy that you are considering offering your volunteer services to assist our students. With the support of volunteers the opportunity to meet the individual needs of each child is greatly increased.
The Travis Governing Board encourages parents/guardians and other members of our community to share their time, knowledge and abilities with our students. Community volunteers in our schools enrich the educational program and strengthen our schools' relationships with homes, businesses, public agencies and private institutions.
The education of our youth takes a community effort. Caring members of our community bring new energies and resources into our schools, and expand the walls of the classrooms. All over the country schools are drawing support from their communities through the efforts of volunteers who work in our schools, become career mentors, contribute goods and supplies, and those that support our schools financially through endowments and grants.
To get started as a volunteer; fill out the Volunteer Registration Packet (English), Volunteer Registration Packet (Spanish) If you plan on driving for an event fill out the Driver's Certification Form and turn it in to your school site for approval.
