Representation & Advocacy for your Views

Whether it's the State Board of Education, a legislative committee, or an education coalition, whenever decisions about educators and students are being made, LEA is there representing your views.

Employment Rights & Legal Assistance

LEA's legal advice extends far beyond liability insurance and attorneys. Any time you have a question about your employment rights or benefits, ask your UniServ directors. If you need legal assistance, LEA attorneys are the best in the state in employment-related and school law. And these services are all free to LEA members.

Community Relations

LEA shares with the public and with key decision-makers pertinent information about education from the viewpoints of teachers and school employees. It builds the image of public school educators through advertising and public relations activities.

Information

LEA is your best source of accurate, timely information. LEA keeps on top of current laws, regulations and policies affecting education. Information is as always as close as an email or phone call away for any member.

Networking

Through LEA, you can connect with other educators from across the state and nation who are dealing with the same issues that face you.

Instructional and Professional Development (IPD)

LEA provides opportunities to meet the personal and professional goals of members. IPD helps promote and support local, state, and national opportunities related to instruction and professional development. LEA also offers workshops, grants and scholarships to members and an LCPS student attending college to become a teacher.

Publications

NEA Member Benefits All LEA members receive regular national, state and local publications with the latest educational developments. As a member, you receive discounts on all of the hundreds of resources available through the NEA Member Benefits.

Liability Insurance

If you are sued, LEA/VEA/NEA liability insurance provides you with an attorney and $1 million in coverage.
