*VA TV Classroom is a Virginia public media collaboration with Blue Ridge PBS, VPM, WETA and WHRO Public Media. 

This block of programs for children in grades K - 3 and 7 - 10 was developed by Virginia's public media stations and the Virginia Department of Education, based on educational priority areas for the State and content that is available for broadcast. Educational video and lesson plans for all subjects and grades can be found at pbslearningmedia.org where you can search the material by VA Standard of Learning, subject, and grade.

On April 27, VA TV Classroom will add a special hour from 3:00 - 4:00 p.m. called AP Prep Week, with content provided by Virtual Virginia in collaboration with WHRO focusing on a different AP subject each day.

Below you will find the daily schedules along with related resources for each program to reinforce the concepts discussed in the television show.
