VIA Public Media has changed its afternoon television schedule from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. to air programs that can provide learn-at-home opportunities for students.

Each program airing during this block will have curriculum and additional resources that parents and educators can use for students in grades 4-12. All resources can be found free of charge below. This schedule has been designed to help school districts bridge the digital divide and provide access to learning for all students at home regardless of access to computers or the internet.

“We want families to know that they are not alone during this time and that time at home can be spent learning together,” said Kirsten Smith, Grants & Education Officer at VIA Public Media. “From Nature and NOVA to insightful documentaries, VIA and PBS have hundreds of hours of learning opportunities for students at all grade levels”.
