What is Arizona PBS Educational Outreach?

We specialize in supporting educators and students in the classroom, and families at home by creating and connecting quality PBS educational content to national and common core state standards. We help our constituents improve student performance through evidence and research-based content that is relevant and engaging. We accomplish this through the power of noncommercial television, the Internet, radio, other media, outreach activities, and a variety of community-based initiatives.

Today, Arizona PBS Educational Outreach provides digital resources and face-to-face community outreach throughout the state including innovative research-based workshops for early childhood.  As the educational arm of Arizona PBS Public Television, Arizona PBS Educational Outreach is a trusted PreK-16 resource that uses the most innovative educational technologies to enrich the lives of children, students, educators, caregivers and parents through quality outreach programs and services that educate, inform, and inspire.

Individual educators, schools and districts can become members of Arizona PBS and receive special educational discounts in addition to those offered by the station.
