“Learn-at-Home” programming is available to Herkimer CSD students through local public television stations starting Monday, March 23.
In partnership with New York State Education Department (NYSED), New York’s public television stations will offer educational programming for students. Programs for students from prekindergarten through grade 12 will air every weekday. Locally, programs will be available via WCNY. More information is at wcny.org/stayconnected/, where additional learning resources are provided for students and parents.
Programming will be available for young children (PreK through grade 4) and older children (grade 5 through grade 12) on different digital channels. Material can be viewed for free over-the-air with a television antenna, or on cable.
Parents and educators should check local listings for information about their public television stations’ schedules and channel lineup. As this program continues, stations are planning to offer more specific educational information and resources developed in conjunction with local school districts, BOCES, parents and teachers.
New special collections of learning materials have also been created for parents at PBSLearningMedia.org.
NYSED’s remote Continuity of Learning Resources website is also now live, and includes options and examples of technology and non-technology-based resources for districts and schools. NYSED plans to continue to update and add resources to this dedicated website.
