Hardy Oak is appreciative of our volunteers!

All Hardy Oak volunteers need to be DPS cleared before volunteering at Hardy Oak and must go through the following steps:

Complete your DPS Clearance:

  • Go to: https://www.neisd.net/volunteer/register
  • Follow the online instructions.
  • This step needs to be completed for each volunteer – mom, dad, grandparent, guardian, etc. You will not be permitted to volunteer at school until you have received this clearance through NEISD. The Online Criminal History Check typically takes three days to be processed. If you have volunteered over the last year, the system will automatically redo your background check every two years. If you haven’t volunteered over the past year, your status has become inactive and you will need to call the district to get it reactivated.

For safety purposes, we ask that volunteers do not bring younger children/siblings during shifts and events.  Thank you for understanding.
