LAS CRUCES, NM (KTSM) — Las Cruces PBS affiliate KRWG will begin broadcasting classroom programming aimed at school-age children beginning Monday, April 6 at 8 a.m. on KRWG-TV’s broadcast channel 22.1.

The educational content, APS@HOME, will be presented on New Mexico’s other PBS stations, KENW in Portales and New Mexico PBS in Albuquerque, helping children and their parents statewide.

“The initiative will have a statewide impact thanks to the collective reach of KENW, KNME and KRWG,” said Adrian Velarde, General Manager. “By joining forces, we reach 98% of the state’s population and we are the most accessible resource in this time of crisis. We are all extremely proud to be able to serve New Mexico students and teachers by delivering this critical content.”

The broadcasts are divided into lessons for students grades K-5 in order to help them resume learning key topics.

Daily lesson plans will be broadcast daily and will be made available later for individual “on-demand” lessons. The supplemental learning videos feature Albuquerque Public School educators in short segments teaching a variety of subjects and grade levels including English language arts, math, visual and performing arts, physical education, and more.

The segments will also include a sign language interpreter on the lower-left portion of the screen, making them available to hearing-impaired students. Bilingual lessons are also planned.
