WELCOME

Welcome to the web site of the Arlington Education Association (AEA). The AEA is an organization of Arlington Public Schools (APS) employees who support our union through member dues, and who advocate for employee rights, fair treatment under APS policies and procedures, and a competitive employee compensation package, including salaries commensurate with the cost of living in Arlington.

Our union is directed by a member-elected Executive Board, with the President as its chief spokesperson and leading public advocate. The AEA also supports numerous committees which assist our union in its work.

Please take a few minutes to review our ongoing activities and current newsletter. If you’re an employee of APS, and not yet a member, we encourage you to join us. We value your membership and welcome your comments and questions. It is our union that makes us strong!

COVID question?

“Coronavirus (COVID-19) has now hit Virginia in a big way.” - Jim Livingston
VEA President


Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by a newly discovered coronavirus.
Most people infected with the COVID-19 virus will experience mild to moderate respiratory illness and recover without requiring special treatment.  Older people and those with underlying medical problems like cardiovascular disease, diabetes, chronic respiratory disease, and cancer are more likely to develop serious illnesses.

Budget News You Can Use

Did you know: (1) furlough day is being proposed in the Interim Superintendent’s FY 21 budget? This could have been taken from reserves, it’s there.

How about: Class size is going up? APS already has the largest class sizes in the state, and not enough respect is given to teachers or students. Many things drive the class size from building to buildings. Allocations are not matching what’s being printed. Ask why?

Do you know: Where all the lapse and turnover money has gone? AEA doesn’t either and wonders why it’s not 100% returned to compensation. Simply put, when someone retires, that projected income should automatically go toward compensation every year.

Did you know: A lot of waste is being spent, and while next FY ’21 may be tight, why do we need to cut positions which are people. No other county is furloughing, and APS is better than that.

Members! Your input is needed now. Speak up against the budget. Be vocal and schedule virtual meetings! Your voice matters more today than yesterday.
