The Los Angeles Unified School District, the second-largest district in the nation, announced a plan in partnership with PBS SoCal and KCET, Southern California’s flagship PBS organizations, to provide for continuity of learning for its students in the event of a significant number of schools closures due to the coronavirus.

This measure will allow 700,000 local Los Angeles Unified students educational resources via television broadcast in the event of significant school closures. The plan is for all students to have access to free educational resources at home provided by the local public media organizations, both on-air and online, regardless of their broadband access. The initiative will entail three local public media channels broadcast content specifically targeted to kids Pre-K through the 12th grade. The partnership can be a model for other partnerships between public media organizations and school districts throughout the U.S., as PBS SoCal and KCET work together to deliver a satellite feed that other public media stations can use.
