What is PWEA?

Prince William Education Association?

The Prince William Education Association exists to create a deep and abiding interest in the cause of education, to promote competency in teaching and in the administration of the schools, to urge upon the electorate the importance of adequate support to all institutions for the general diffusion of knowledge in order that our government may have the sanctions of an enlightened public opinion, and to represent its members in matters with the Prince William County School Board.



This committee works to meet the communications needs of Association members and collaborates further to enhance PWEA’s overall image with both internal and external audiences. Members of the committee currently maintain and update the PWEA website and social media pages, as well as create video content for the YouTube channel. The committee encourages involvement of local Association members in public relations activities and campaigns.
