Homebound Student TV Schedule | THIRTEEN

0

Updated May 26, 2020

Stations WLIW21 and WLIW WORLD have changed their programming schedules effective Monday, March 30 to better serve homebound families during the COVID-19 pandemic. On April 11, New York Mayor Bill de Blasio announced that New York schools would be closed for the remainder of the 2019-20 school year (until June 2019). The Mayor and Chancellor of Carranza Schools shared this message for families. We hope our programs can serve as useful remote learning tools during this unusual time.

Monday to Friday from 6:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. on WLIW21free live broadcasts focus on all major K-12 school subjects, drawing from WNET’s extensive archive of PBS and locally produced programs, plus an hour of Regents Review and daily educational content from the WCNY TV series Classroom.

Monday to Friday from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. on WLIW WORLDnew educational programming for grades 6-12 – “WORLD At Home Learning” – features the best in public media science, history and English language arts programming.
