Tiger Families:

In partnership with the San Diego County Office of Education and San Diego Unified School District, KPBS is streaming TK-12 educational programming on its public television channel and opening access to its digital library of resources for students, families, teachers, and the community during school closures.
The "At-Home Learning: Where Children Matter" initiative launched Monday, March 16, will bring 12 hours of state standards-aligned television programming scheduled by grade level, and free access to a digital library of educational resources. KPBS programming and PBS LearningMedia California educational resources are free to families, educators, and the community to support learning during the school closures.

                                
Beginning Monday, March 16, KPBS 2 will broadcast 12 hours of programming selected to meet the TK-12 California educational standards. The programming will be from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. in viewing blocks by grade level:
  • 6 a.m. to 8 a.m. - Grades TK-3

How to Watch

A student does not need access to a computer or the Internet to watch. Tune into KPBS 2 with an antenna at channel 15.2, or on Cox 811 or Spectrum 1277. The programming and digital content is also accessible via mobile. Direct TV, Dish, and AT&T U-verse do not carry KPBS 2. If you have this service, change the input on your TV to use the antenna and watch over the air on channel 15.2.
