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
- 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. - Grades 4-8
- 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. - Grades 9-12
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.
