UNC-TV PARTNERS WITH NC DPI TO SUPPORT AT-HOME LEARNING
UNC-TV Public Media North Carolina is working with the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction to assist with stay-at-home solutions for students and their families or caregivers. For more than 65 years, UNC-TV has served as a trusted partner alongside parents and educators to provide quality educational content that is both free and accessible to North Carolina’s children.
As of Monday, March 30th, UNC-TV is providing students in grades four through 12 with a robust schedule of programs. The educational programming block will be available over the air on the North Carolina Channel and streamed live at unctv.org/athomelearning. This vetted, curriculum-informed programming is available Monday-Friday, from 8 AM-1 PM, for grades four through eight, and from 1-6 PM, for grades nine through 12 (actual times may vary, please check the weekly schedule online at unctv.org/ahl). This is an evolving effort on the part of UNC-TV and NCDPI and will be adapted as needed over the coming weeks to best serve the needs of North Carolina’s children.
To support this programming, NCDPI will provide ongoing weekly lesson extension activities and links to printables. That document is attached for the week of April 6 - 10. Other documents in this message include the schedule for April 6 - 10 and informative documents to help illuminate this project.
