RCOE is proud to be working with the award-winning programming of our local PBS affiliate KVCR as part of the At-Home Learning Public Education Partnership. We are committed to equity and access and this partnership with KVCR helps support the teaching innovation needed to transform the education experience to work for all students. Acknowledgment of the present injustices sets the stage for systemic change, but there is a need to acknowledge that a commitment to social justice in education is complex and challenging work. We are taking a multi-faceted step approach to eliminate the digital divide in our county. As we work to ensure that all students have access to the internet, we recognize that is not the current reality for all of our students, and our partnership with KVCR offers an alternative route to high quality instruction.
Districts and schools are encouraged to utilize the free programming available from KVCR and the curricula developed for their programming by RCOE’s Instructional Services (below) to support all students in receiving grade level appropriate standards based educational content. Please refer to your local cable guide for your KVCR channel to access these educational shows.

KVCR has begun broadcasting grade appropriate educational television programming. Most shows have accompanying lesson plans to assist students in processing the content that was developed in partnership with the Riverside County Office of Education and San Bernardino Superintendent of Schools. Located in a powerfully diverse region that includes nearly 63% combined Hispanic, African-American and Native American populations, KVCR aims to reflect the variety of cultures, traditions and interests that makes the Inland Empire so unique and vibrant. KVCR actively develops and nourishes strong community relationships with their audience through local initiatives and events that celebrate the diversity, innovation and resilience of the Inland Empire.
