Expanded Remote Learning Resources from NYSED and PBS

Students from pre-kindergarten through 12th grade have access to PBS educational programming every weekday on-air. These efforts are helping to ensure that all students can have access to quality educational resources regardless of whether they have a computer or broadband at home. Parents and educators should check local listings for their local public television stations for additional information on schedules and channel lineup. You can find your local PBS station by using the PBS Station Finder.

 

In addition, NYSED launched a new Continuity of Learning website featuring resources to provide districts and teachers with increased options to keep students engaged in learning. Among many other resources, the website features lists of digital content to enhance distance learning in a dozen subject areas including early learning, English Language Arts (ELA), Math, Physical Education, Science, Social Studies and Special Education. Educators will also find digital tools to assist in communicating with students and families and creating engaging instructional opportunities for students. NYSED's site also provides non-technological suggestions for schools and parents to consider when planning for continuity of learning. There are many ways students can continue learning that do not require access to a computing device. NYSED recently added dozens of new resources to the website and will continue to update and add resources as they become available.
