Volunteer Process

Keeping the safety and well-being of our students first, state law and district policy require that all Cedar Hill ISD volunteers (students between age 13-17 and District Employees are exempt) complete the district's volunteer application, which includes a Criminal Background Check. Applications and background checks expire on June 30 and must be renewed each school year.

All volunteers must be approved through in order to volunteer in CHISD.

Once a Voly account has been created, you will be asked to complete your preferred volunteer application and check the option to submit for a background check through JDP.

Approval time is normally 1 to 5 business days, pending there are no flags in the applicant's background. In some cases, the background check is approved immediately.

If the account is flagged for any reason, the approval of your account could take up to 2 weeks. If you have any questions, please email

All volunteers must use their legal name (including middle), date of birth, and address but social security numbers are not required. Any error when entering information will prolong the approval process.

You are encouraged to select the school(s) you wish to volunteer for during the application process in order to receive specific volunteer opportunities and be shown as a regular volunteer.
