PMGSoCal president and CEO Andy Russel joins LAUSD Superintendent Austin Beutner to announce the At Home Learning program to expand public access to educational media.
At-Home Learning: A California Public Education Partnership

Para leer en español, haga clic aquí.

Many Southern California schools are closed due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, causing thousands of students to be without access to educational instruction.

As part of the public media mission to ensure all kids, regardless of their capabilities, have access to continued free educational resources at home, PBS SoCal | KCET, in partnership with LAUSD and in collaboration with California PBS stations, are offering broadcast programming and accompanying digital resources that adhere to California’s state curriculum to provide continued at-home learning.

Students in Pre-K through 12th grade can now access free, educational PBS daytime programming designated for each grade level weekdays through the following channels:

The elementary student broadcast schedules will include trusted and educational programs including Peg + Cat, Martha Speaks and Sesame Street. Middle and high school programming will include programs like NOVA, American Masters and Shakespeare Uncovered. Additional PBS programs are also available to stream on the free PBS Video and PBS KIDS Apps.

In addition to the broadcast schedules, California students and educators can also access an online library of free educational resources from PBS LearningMedia curated in partnership with KQED in San Francisco, including videos, associated lesson plans, hosted training sessions and self-guided how-to resources for teachers, that accompany PBS’s trusted programs and align with current classroom standards. The broadcast and digital materials provided by California PBS stations are one component of the at-home learning experience. To access more resources, please visit PBS LearningMedia.

LAUSD also has prepared take-home packets with reading materials, assignments and more. For more information about LAUSD school closures and available resources, please visit LAUSD. Please check with your local school district for additional resources they may offer.

FAQs

What is the collaboration between LAUSD and PBS SoCal/ KCET?

As a result of the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) school closures due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, we believe PBS SoCal and KCET’s contribution can have a positive impact on the continued learning for our students. As Southern California’s flagship PBS organization, we aim to keep the second largest school district in the nation well-informed and provide our students with educational resources via television broadcast and with online supplemental resources.
 
The health of both students and staff is of the utmost importance and we want to ensure that we’re taking every available precaution to keep our Southern California community safe. 

Who does this initiative serve?

This plan we’ve developed alongside LAUSD will serve over 700,000 students, regardless of their capacity and capabilities, for their access to free educational resources at home both on-air and online.

How will all students be able to access this resource?

PBS SoCal, KLCS and KCET to broadcast will content specifically targeted to kids Pre-K through the 12th grade.

⦁    PBS SoCal (Daytime programming from 5 a.m. to 5 p.m. Pre-K through 3rd grade) 
⦁    KLCS-TV (Daytime Programming would highlight content for Pre-K through 12th grade from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. with additional educational program in the evenings)
⦁    KCET (Daytime programming from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. 9th grade through 12th grade)
⦁    Additional educational programming on PBS SoCal and KLCS digital channels

LAUSD teachers have been trained on how to utilize the PBS LearningMedia, a national resource that offers additional content to support educational assignments.  

The PBS LearningMedia materials are offered in conjunction with the on-air content and also be available online. 

KCET is Southern California’s flagship PBS organization and a local, member-supported non-profit organization. To learn more about us, please visit our About page.
