About AEA

Welcome to the Arlington Education Association (AEA)!

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.

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!

Our Values

Who We Are

  • We advocate for public education, as well as the professional development and fair treatment of educators.

  • We help our colleagues develop their skills through shared professional learning and mentoring.

  • We advocate competitive salaries as well as increased school funding, so Arlington can retain and attract great teachers and support staff.

  • We work to show the public the important social good that public schools, teachers, and education support professionals deliver.

  • We defend and protect members from unfair regulations, working conditions, and professional liabilities.


To unite our members and local communities across the Commonwealth in fulfilling the promise of a high-quality public education that successfully prepares every single student to realize his or her full potential. We believe this can be accomplished by advocating for students, education professionals, and support professionals.


A great public school for every child in Arlington Public Schools.
