PBS39/WLVT – Lehigh Valley Learns
Lehigh Valley Public Media™, home of PBS39 and WLVR News, offers free, over-the-air curriculum for Pennsylvania students PreK-12 developed in partnership with the seven stations of Pennsylvania PBS and the Pennsylvania Department of Education. PBS39 has also worked with educators locally to create Lehigh Valley Learns – a distance learning educational initiative that launched March 30, 2020. Recognizing that a portion of the community does not have access to the internet, the sole medium that can reach nearly 100% of students is broadcast television. By airing “Learning at Home” content on PBS39, anyone with a TV can watch over-the-air or on our website at PBS39.org/Live.
