CET/PBS At Home Learning Schedule

CET and ThinkTV have changed their daytime programming schedules to offer a full line-up of age and grade-level appropriate, standards-based programs so that children can continue to learn, whether or not they have internet access. This special programming has been developed in cooperation with the Ohio Department of Education, local and regional educators.

The new schedule airs from 7am to 6pm each weekday and will be updated each week until further notice. A running schedule as well as complementary online resources and lessons are available.

Imagination Library

The Ohio Governor’s Imagination Library, through a partnership with Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library, are working to send every child in Ohio from birth to age five a new book each month. Research has shown that a child with 25 books in their home complete an average of two additional years of schooling compared to their peers without books in their home. Their goal is that every kindergartener begins school with 60 books in their home.
