We know a lot is happening right now with school and other closures. We want to support families wherever you are.
With the recent announcement of school closures across the state, California PBS stations have developed a statewide home learning resource that is accessible while campuses are closed. These programs are specifically aligned with curriculum priorities in the state of California.
Starting on Monday, March 16, KVIE2 will air educational programs specifically for kids in grades Pre-K through 12 from 6AM to 6PM. You can also find a number of online resources at pbskids.org/learn to help support your child’s learning during these closures.
|Programs like Peg + Cat and Cyberchase.|
|8AM-1PM||Grades 4-8||Science and social studies with History Detectives and NOVA: The Planets plus American Literature like Louisa May Alcott and Margaret Mitchell.|
|1-6PM||Grades 9-12||U.S. History, Social Studies, and Literature with Reconstruction: America After the Civil War, The Greeks, Maya Angelou, and Shakespeare Uncovered.|
