BOZEMAN, Mont. (AP) – Montana PBS has announced plans to renew a show created at the start of the coronavirus pandemic in March to support school children in distance learning or in temporary quarantine.
The new Learn at Home schedule is slated to launch on Monday and run until the end of the school year on June 4, the Bozeman Daily Chronicle reported.
The shows take place every day of the week from 6:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and cover several subjects in language arts, social studies, science and math for elementary and middle school students.
“We know that not all homes in the state have the same access to devices and a strong internet connection, but most homes have a television that receives our broadcast signal,” said Nikki Vradenburg, director of Montana PBS Education.
Director of photography Paul Heitt-Rennie estimates that most households have signed up for the Learn at Home program. He said data from Nielsen over the summer showed it was watched by up to 150,000 households, or up to 45% of households in the state.
“All of the educators we spoke to asked us to continue,” Vradenburg said. “They knew that students would be home for part of the school year and that it would be important to have reliable and trustworthy content to watch during the day.”
PBS National has also been a resource in developing content and timetables to support students.
