Be a volunteer at SHS

Sachse High School encourages parents, guardians, and patrons of our district to become an active part of our campus.

One avenue to become active with our campus is to volunteer your time at Sachse High and participate in campus and district committees. The benefits of volunteering at SHS and other GISD campuses are numerous and beneficial to students, the school, and the community - and we look forward to your participation.

It is time to register to volunteer

Every year you have to complete this process in order to volunteer for Sachse High School events. You must register online on the GISD Volunteer Webpage . Then come by the school to have your driver license scanned. You must do both parts.

Application MUST be complete/submitted for every new school year as well as scanning your driver's license.

If you did not do this last year, you MUST sign in at a campus with a valid government photo ID and have your picture taken to complete the volunteer application process. If you are not sure if you did, it is best to do it again to ensure your application is processed.

Once an application is complete (submitted with a campus sign in and photo) your application will be processed within 72 business hours.

You will receive 2 confirmation email: (Please be sure you enter a valid email address!)

1.       Notifying you, your application has been received.

2.       Within 72 business hours notifying you, your application has been approved.

**If you do not receive an approval email within 72 business hours, there is more than likely an issue with your application and you should call or email your campus to determine what the issue is.

Incomplete applications will be automatically denied after 30 days and you will need to resubmit a new one. No picture or no campus sign-in is considered an incomplete application.

Please call or email Karen Summers at Sachse HS if you have any questions.
