HISD has new Volunteers in Public Schools (VIPS) program effective August 1st - RAPTOR!!

From HISD:  Volunteer in Public Schools is proud to announce our new partnership with RAPTOR Technologies. Effective July 20, 2018, the VIPS and VISITS Manager applications will be disabled. At that time, no data can be entered or edited/deleted. 

Starting August 1, 2018, we will be replacing VIPS and VISITS Manager with RAPTOR to manage the volunteer registration, background approval and volunteer management process.  On this date, the new RAPTOR Volunteer Management system will become active.

The Raptor System will be used to manage campus volunteers and visitors by screening registered sex offenders, managing custody issues, coordinating volunteers, and responding to emergencies.

We will continue to expand our resources and supports for the VIPS Program. The Volunteer in Public Schools webpage will be updated to deliver the most relevant information regarding the transition from VISITS Manager to the RAPTOR Volunteer Management system.
