NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WJHL) — The Tennessee Department of Education has partnered with PBS stations across the state to broadcast instructional lessons for school children as schools remain closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The department says PBS stations will offer up to 30 hours of standards-aligned lessons for children in first through eighth grades.

The 30-minute segments will be broadcast each weekday beginning April 6 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. ET. The segments will be carried on WNPT Nashville, East Tennessee PBS, WCTE Upper Cumberland, WKNO Memphis, West TN PBS, and Chattanooga WTCI.

“Broadcast programming, developed by the Tennessee Department of Education in partnership with teachers across the state, will cover English language arts (ELA) and math for first through sixth grades,” TDOE said in a news release. “For seventh and eighth graders, recorded video lessons will be available online starting April 13th.”

The department says viewers can watch or record up to four more hours of content that will air overnight. The videos will also be posted on YouTube.
