WSRE-TV distributes approximately 7,500 books annually through this program.

WSRE-TV is one of the 26 national sites participating in NTTI. The National Teacher Training Institute for Math, Science and Technology is the largest and most distinguished national professional development program developed and sustained by public broadcasting. Educators from Northwest Florida serve as master teachers for WSRE-TV and NTTI and develop interactive, innovative lesson plans based on public television programs.
PBS Kids Educational Programming
PBS Kids Educational Programming is a service designed for use in the pre-school - 12 curriculums. WSRE-TV distributes thousands of materials each month to both public and private schools, as well as to daycare facilities and home school associations.
Ready to Learn
This national outreach project allows public broadcasting stations to form alliances with educational and social service agencies and businesses. The goal is to ensure that all children in America begin their school careers "ready to learn" with everything necessary to be successful. Ready to Learn includes programming and learning tips for children, training of parents and care providers, and family newsletters.
