WHRO Public Media worked closely with the Virginia Department of Education to create the second season to provide SOL-aligned instruction to students in grades K-7 who are unable to access other distance learning options due to a lack of high-speed internet. Public media stations across the Commonwealth will broadcast VA TV Classroom Monday through Friday beginning Monday, September 14. The season concludes Friday, October 23.

About VA TV Classroom:
WHRO Public Media worked closely with the Virginia Department of Education to create “VA TV Classroom” to provide instruction to students in grades K-10 who are unable to access other distance learning options due to a lack of high-speed internet.
WHRO, as well as three other public media stations across the Commonwealth, aired this instructional content during a two-hour block Monday through Friday.
“WHRO is proud to be a part of ‘VA TV Classroom.’ WHRO actually stands for Home Room One,” WHRO President and CEO Bert Schmidt said. “WHRO was created nearly 60 years ago as a way to bring the classroom into homes via the TV. Much of our educational instruction is now created digitally, but knowing so many students now don’t have access to our online resources, we were thrilled to bring this important instruction back to our air.”
