Broadcasting Student Lessons During COVID-19 Crisis
Daily TV and Web Content for K-5 Students

In response to the novel coronavirus crisis that has resulted in the closures of all New Mexico public schools, NMPBS and Albuquerque Public Schools (APS) announce an ambitious and vital new broadcast initiative to support at-home learning for K-5 students and their families, by broadcasting a new weekday morning schedule of televised APS classes.

APS @HOME will give kids in grades K-5 the chance to resume lessons in key topics, as determined by the school district.

Beginning Monday, April 6, APS @HOME, will begin broadcasting from 8 a.m. - Noon weekdays on Channel 5.1, and posting educational programs on the APS YouTube channel.

There will now be reruns through Friday, June 12. New shows resume Monday, June 15 - Friday July 17 (5 weeks).
