Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteer Opportunities


It takes a village to raise a child, and Lake Dallas ISD has many volunteer opportunities within our school district for those looking to support students, teachers, and schools.

Volunteer Opportunities

Every volunteer must pass a background check to ensure our students are interacting with trustworthy adults. Background checks must be completed annually to ensure the district has updated information on adults in its schools. Please view the programs below for a way you can get involved and support our Falcons.

Requirements and Forms

School volunteers are a key part of a successful school and the Lake Dallas ISD encourages public involvement at all levels of the District. In the interest of safety and security, the Lake Dallas Independent School District is authorized to obtain criminal history information on all volunteers (Texas Education Code Section 2.083). All volunteers at Lake Dallas ISD campuses must complete a criminal history background check, online, at the LDISD website. 

  • All volunteers should allow up to 3 weeks for processing.
  • To verify that you have been included in the Volunteer Data Bank, please contact your child's campus.

How often does the District require a Criminal History Check to be run? 

The District requires ALL volunteers to reapply each school year. By completing this application online, you are also agreeing with an electronic signature to having us request this background check. The school district pays for the actual background check; principals will have access to the "real time" volunteer list. The information obtained in this release form and through the background check will remain confidential within the school system and will be viewed by only select District personnel. The district reserves the right to re-check the criminal history of any volunteer during the school year when information or circumstances indicate the need.
