It’s that time of year again when new and returning volunteers may need to update their background checks for volunteering at HEB ISD campuses, and get a new VIPS badge made! The back to school dates, times and locations are:

Please remember:
– Background checks can take up to 72 hours to process.
– An updated background check cannot be done until the current one expires in 30 days or less, or has already expired.
– When a background check has EXPIRED or is PENDING, the box in the upper right corner of background check page will be RED. The background check is not complete until box is BLUE on the background check page.

The following documentation needs to be brought to the VIPS badge sessions:
– A printed copy of a completed background check showing the volunteer’s 2015-2016 background check expiration date (your VIPS credentials). We cannot accept an image of a completed background check on a smartphone or device. You MUST bring a print out of your new VIPS credentials.
