PBS To Provide Educational Programming to Vermont Students

VERMONT - On Monday the Scott Administration announced it's partnership with Vermont PBS so the station could help provide education for students stuck at home. Governor Phil scott recognizes that this will not replace in person learning, but still feels that this option will help students get the education they need, but through broadcast and online content.


"Educators and parents are working hard to achieve these goals and this initiative will help suport their work." Scott added, "I am greatful to Vermont PBS as this partnership will give those already doing so much another tool to reach and educate students."

The broadcasting network will utilize two statewide channels to air content for pre-k through 12 grades, and will also provide online sources for teachers and caregivers to access a curriculum that includes activities, assigments, and learning objectives. 

"We know schools have to reach schools of all ages and in all corners of Vermont, including areas without robust connectivity," said Education Secretary Dan French.  

The partnership started this past Monday and will continue through the rest of the school year. The schedule for on air programing and more information can be found here
