Volunteer Update July 2020 - Because of the proposed restrictions and the uncertain nature of volunteering in PISD schools for the 2020-2021 school year, our Volunteer forms will remain active with the understanding that volunteers may not be utilized at various times during the school year.
The best way to make a difference in your child’s education is to be involved. Please take a few minutes to look over the descriptions for the various volunteer opportunities we have at Murphy. Whether you can volunteer an hour a week or an hour a year we would be thankful to have your help! We are happy to have you be a part of the Murphy family and look forward to working with you.
Become a PTA Member
Becoming a PTA member is the easiest way to get involved. We won't ask you to sign up for anything you don't want to do. This is the simplest way to support the many programs we provide for our students throughout the year without having to worry about time commitments, being overworked, or anything else.
Complete a Background Check with PISD
In order to volunteer on any Plano ISD campus, including Murphy, you must be cleared through the district. All volunteers must reapply with the district each year to be considered for volunteer opportunities. Complete your application after July 1st and be ready to go when the new school year begins! After you complete the application, you may log back in to the Volunteer Application on www.pisd.edu to check your own status.
Note: Plano ISD is implementing a new volunteer management system for the 2020-2021 school year. In order to facilitate a smooth transition, all 2019-2020 volunteer records will remain active until August 31, 2020, instead of being deactivated on June 30, 2020 per standard practice. Volunteers will need to reapply in the new system prior to August 31 when their profile will be deactivated in the old system. More details: https://www.pisd.edu/Domain/265
Please allow 2 days to 2 weeks for clearance status to appear. Once you're cleared through PISD, sign up to volunteer.
