▢  Chatsworth School PTA—Get involved! 

• Login/Register. (Registering on this site is free.)  If you had an account last year, it will take less than a minute to confirm your family information. If you are new, it should take about 5 minutes.

After updating your account or registering for the first time, you will have access to the Online School Directory! This is a free service from the PTA and can only be accessed by registering on our site

• Join PTA —After you register, you will have the option to join PTA. PTA is a framework that helps us grow the kind of community influence we need to support every child in our sphere of care —and help our students reach their potential. We invite you to join us this year—and hope you will! 


 My Volunteer Interests & Skills—  Volunteering at Chatsworth School is largely coordinated through the PTA. And we would LOVE to serve with you! Tell us how you would enjoy being involved and we will try to get you plugged in.  When we each do a little—using the talents and abilities we have— it's amazing what we can accomplish together. A volunteer interest form will be available during the first week of school on our website. 



▢  Required BCPS Volunteer Application and Training

To volunteer in the school directly or through the PTA, all volunteers must complete an application and training for the school year. Even if you volunteered last year, you must complete this application and training for the current school year.

Visit to fill out the application and complete the online training course or learn about in-person training.

Once you have completed the application and training, please print your application and certificate and return it to the school.
