Quick Guide: Joining the OES PTA

Welcome to Our New Sign Up Process!

WHETHER YOU HAVE BEEN A PAST OES PTA MEMBER OR ARE SIGNING UP FOR THE FIRST TIME, there is a NEW process for signing up for the PTA this year for everyone. We are now required to use the National PTA online system to join the OES PTA.  (Note:  Even if you were an OES PTA member last year, you will be considered a new member this year.)  Here’s how to sign up:

Step 1: Go to

Step 2: Set up an account.

Note:  At the conclusion of the new account set-up, you will be asked “Do Not Include In Local PTA Directory?”  This DOES NOT apply to the printed directory or online school directory that the OES PTA provides to OES PTA members.  This applies to the National and Virginia PTA listings of PTA members.  If you have questions about opting out of the OES PTA print and online directory (and having your family information excluded from the school directory), please contact our Directory Chair at

Step 3: You are now ready to JOIN the OES PTA.  Click on the red box at the top of the page: 


Step 4: Click on the GREEN “Join PTA in Your Community” box.       

Step 5: Click on VA.   Choose “Join Virginia PTA (Online Form).” 


Step 6: Choose the dropdown options as shown below and proceed to check out to complete the sign-up process.
