VIPS are Volunteers in Public Schools is HISD.  Each year, thousands of parents, students and community partners support HISD students and teachers by volunteering their time.


If you are interested in volunteering at Horn – in any capacity – and you haven’t already registered for VIPS, please do so.  Anybody who wants to volunteer at an HISD school must have a background check performed every school year.  After creating or verifying your VIPS account, please take your drivers license up to the front office and have Ms. Brenda Ortiz make a copy.   The background check can take 2-3 weeks.
