CUMBERLAND — The Washington, D.C. region and Maryland Public Television stations announced a partnership to support the education needs of families whose children are learning from home during the coronavirus public health emergency.
The At-Home Learning initiative launches April 6 on Maryland Public Television, WETA and Howard University Television.
A coordinated schedule of educational programs selected by the stations are available weekdays to viewers through cable and satellite providers and on a livestream at mpt.org/livestream.
The broadcast schedule consists of 11 daytime hours of educational programs beginning at 7 a.m. on MPT and continuing throughout the day on all three channels, ending at 6 p.m. on WHUT.
The service will continue until students have returned to their classrooms when the coronavirus distancing precautions are relaxed.
