Acceptable Computer Use Form
HISD offers all students access to the Internet and student electronic mail unless parents choose to "Opt-Out." If a parent does not want a student to have e-mail and/or Internet access they must complete and return the "Opt-Out" form. Students may still use school computers for more traditional tasks, such as word processing. The forms are below.

Volunteers in Public Schools - VIPS
VIPS are HISD volunteers. Each year, thousands of parents, students and community partners support HISD students and teachers by volunteering their time. VIPS represent all economic, ethnic and educational backgrounds. They are caring adults or children who tutor students, serve as classroom assistants to teachers, provide enrichment and hands-on experience with computers, work in the library, clinic, office, cafeteria, and provide other support.
