Williamson County Schools parents who are looking for additional resources for their first through eighth grade students may want to tune into Nashville Public Television, NPT, beginning April 6, 2020.

The Tennessee Department of Education is partnering with NPT and other PBS stations across the state to offer up to 30 hours of standards-aligned instructional lessons per week during the COVID-19 school closures.

The 30-minute segments will air from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. each weekday on WNPT. Additionally, viewers can watch or record up to four more hours of content that will be broadcast overnight. Programming in English/Language Arts (ELA) and math for first through sixth grade students will be offered first while lessons for seventh and eighth grader students will begin starting April 13. The department will also make all videos available on its YouTube channel after they air. A schedule of programming in our area is available. Select the day of the week to see the schedule.

Accompanying lesson plans and work packets will be posted on the department’s website for teachers and families to use, adapt and build upon. Viewers may access the lesson plans and student work packets here.

The Williamson County Government Channel, WC-TV, will also supplement its programming with educational resources in the coming weeks beginning Monday, April 13 with the district’s Story Time videos.
