El Paso Independent School District requires a criminal history background check of all persons who serve as volunteers in any capacity that involves working directly with students in EPISD schools. In terms of the Rocket Band organization, background checks are required of all who serve as band boosters, chaperones or on any volunteer committee designated by the Director.
You must authorize EPISD to conduct a criminal history check by completing the Volunteers in Public Schools Form. Background checks are conducted by EPISD's Human Resources Department, and information obtained is used only for the purpose of determining eligibility for service as a volunteer.
A new form is required every school year. Download the link to the right. If you download with Adobe Reader you will be able to type in information, save and return a hard copy to the Director. A handwritten signature is required.
