AETN impacts Arkansans in life changing ways.

AETN and PBS programs broaden horizons, inform citizens to make the best decisions and enlighten the minds of children. AETN convenes advocates for tough issues to solve problems through programs such as: "Protecting Arkansas Seniors," "Depression," "Telling Amy's Story," "Healing Minds. Changing Attitudes.," "AIDS in Arkansas" and more. ArkansasIDEAS gives educators the tools they need to make the biggest impact in the classroom, causing student achievement to rise. Early education programs ready children for school, creating a chance at a lifetime of learning success. The Arkansas Campaign for Grade-level Reading, of which AETN is a partner, has identified the top indicators for not reading at grade level - parental engagement, school readiness, attendance and summer learning loss - also lead to high dropout rates. AETN is working in each of these areas to help Arkansas third-graders read at grade level by 2020. AETN works with Arkansas emergency management officials to provide a critical public safety service, using our technology as the backbone for the emergency alert system.
