In collaboration with the San Diego County Office of Education and San Diego Unified School District, KPBS has launched an at-home learning response to school closures for all children and youth in San Diego and Imperial counties. This response includes a new educational schedule for broadcast on KPBS 2, as well as free digital content for at-home learning and support for teachers and parents navigating this new learning landscape throughout the state.
Educational Programming on KPBS 2
KPBS will begin broadcasting a California state standards-aligned educational television schedule, created by PBS SoCal/KCET and the Los Angeles Unified School District. This TV schedule was developed to help schools and districts bridge the digital divide and provide equitable access to learning for all students at home, regardless of access to internet or computers.
Educational programming aligned with state standards runs each weekday 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. starting Monday, March 16, on KPBS 2.
If you do not receive KPBS-2 in your area, PBS programming is available on-demand via the PBS Video App, PBS Kids Video App and at video.kpbs.org. You can find the apps in your device app store or by clicking below.
If there is a show in the broadcast schedule you wish to watch, or find similar content, search for the shows on the video app or video player, or in the search bar of the ca.pbslearningmedia.org. The site is mobile-friendly so an internet connection and computer isn't necessary.
- Grades TK-3: 6 a.m. - 8 a.m.
- Grades 4-8: 8 a.m. -1 p.m.
- Grades 9-12: 1 p.m. - 6 p.m.
Tune into KPBS 2 with an antenna at 15.2, Cox 811, Spectrum 1277.
(Note: there will not be a schedule posted for the weeks of June 15 and June 22. KPBS will broadcast a DOWNTON ABBEY series marathon)
The schedule is in PDF format and requires Adobe Acrobat to open. If you do not have it installed, first install Adobe Acrobat Reader
