We're excited to pass along the following instructional resource to our families:
Blue Ridge PBS, VPM, WETA and WHRO Public Media worked closely with the Virginia Department of Education to create “VA TV Classroom” to provide instruction to students in grades K-10 who are unable to access other distance learning options. “VA TV Classroom” will air instructional content from 1-3 p.m., Monday through Friday. K- 3 instruction begins at 1 p.m., and 7-10th grade instruction starts at 2 p.m. (Earth Science & Algebra). More grades and subjects to come in the future.
VA TV Classroom can be seen on the following WETA channels: WETA PBS Kids: via antenna 26.3, Comcast 266, Cox 801, Verizon FiOS 472 and RCN 38.
