By executive order of our governor, public schools across North Carolina are closed due to COVID-19 through the end of this school year. To address these closings, UNC-TV and the NC Department of Public Instruction are partnering to support school-age children learning at home by providing free, curriculum-informed, over-the-air content that is widely accessible to students—especially those with limited or no internet access (for more information phone: 919-549-7000).
