The LEA negotiates all employee Contracts and, when necessary, Memorandums of Agreement (MOA) for its members. An MOA is a written document describing a cooperative relationship between two parties wishing to work together to meet an agreed upon objective. The MOA serves as a legal document that clarifies or amends terms of an existing contract.
The bargaining team meets frequently with administration and the Lexington School Committee, and keeps members updated – either through direct communication or through updates done by building reps – as the process unfolds.
