Welcome to the web site of the Arlington Education Association (AEA). The AEA is an organization of Arlington Public Schools (APS) employees who support the Association 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.

The Association 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 the Association in its work.
