UNC-TV and the NC Department of Public Instruction have established a partnership that will support remote learning with content that will be accessible to students—especially those with limited or no internet access—at no charge.
Each weekday, two blocks of programming on UNC-TV's North Carolina Channel will serve:
Fourth- through eighth-grade students, from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.
9th- through 12th-grade students, from 1 to 6 p.m. (actual times may vary, please check the weekly schedule online here).
For PreK through third grade, UNC-TV's 24/7 “PBS KIDS” channel -- Rootle -- will continue providing programming appropriate for that age group.
These educational program blocks are available on the North Carolina Channel, available statewide for free over-the-air, through cable providers and streamed online.
