Welcome to LEA
On behalf of the members of the Longview Education Association, I would like to welcome you.
LEA is an organization of education professionals in the Longview School District. There are about 430 of us - classroom teachers, psychologists, resource teachers, counselors, occupational and physical therapists, library media specialists, specialists, and more.
We protect the rights of our members, advocate on their behalf, assist them in resolving conflicts, answer their questions, offer suggestions, and listen to their concerns. It is our responsibility to negotiate with the school district on behalf of our members over wages, hours, and working conditions.
We publish a monthly newsletter, the LEAder, in which we share news of the Association, member benefits and discounts, information about upcoming professional development, available educational resources, and information on current educational issues. In addition, we hold monthly meetings with our elected building representatives to conduct Association business and to ensure communication with our members.
Once again, welcome to our community of educators. We look forward to working with you to make our schools the best they can be and to make your teaching experience in the Longview School District a successful and positive one.
