The Corporation for Public Broadcasting ("CPB") intends to provide funds for up to fifteen (15) public television stations to develop and implement local projects designed to improve the math and literacy skills of children ages two to eight from low-income communities ("Target Audience"), as well as their families and educators ("the Project").
Station proposals must identify the Ready To Learn (RTL) transmedia content (Section IV, A.) that will be used in the Project and organizations that will act as partners and support the implementation of the Project in early learning settings, including after-school and summer settings. Stations must design their project using the best practices previously developed by the first and second cohorts (Section XIII). Stations must also align RTL activities into a broader pre-K to career education strategy so that the Target Audience has a strong foundation on which to build lifelong learning success and the station is positioned as an education leader in their community.
