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 and 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:

  • Pre-K – 3rd grade on PBS SoCal
  • Pre-K – 12th grade on KLCS
  • 9th – 12th grade on KCET

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 has also 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.
