WHRO Education

Education is at the heart of who we are.

In 1961, the school board chairs of Norfolk and Hampton Public Schools began experimenting with the idea of teaching elementary and secondary students through television and, by handshake agreement, established WHRO-TV. Over the next few years, school division membership expanded. The Hampton Roads Educational Telecommunications Association (HRETA, Inc.) currently includes 21 school divisions throughout the Hampton Roads area who work together to own and operate WHRO.

The WHRO Education Team provides high-quality content, services, and resources for various audiences. Many on our team are licensed Virginia educators and hold advanced educational degrees. The entire team works tirelessly to meet the needs of our community.
