Carolina Classrooms

ETV’s signature program that focuses on K-12 education in our state Carolina Classrooms will feature a special program in February on Workforce Development. We'll explore CATE programs and community partnerships that teach students vocational skills to prepare them for the workforce. Be sure to join us on February 27 at 7:00 p.m. for this new program!

ETV Education Survey

You haven’t missed the ETV Education Survey! Each year ETV Education surveys SC teachers, staff and administrators to learn best how to serve you. Based on educator input, ETV has created LearningWhy with complete lesson plans for classes using one-to-one, new online recertification courses, tailored hands-on training to meet your needs,  SC educational content produced to help facilitate learning, and many well-loved series and collections at We’ll be asking for your input in March this year so we invite you to please access the link from the email you will receive or from the March edition of this newsletter. Your input is important and appreciated!

Educational Broadband Wi-Fi Access Project

SCETV has partnered with the South Carolina After School Alliance to go around the state and provide workshops on the Wi-Fi devices and SCETV/PBS resources.  We are aware of some the awesome things happening at the After School Programs throughout the state and we would like to spotlight your center and your wonderful activities.  As we embark on 2019, we want to ask your assistance in making sure we are providing the best customer service possible as well as upgrade any older model devices still in use.  If you are interested in upgrading your older device for a new device please let us know.  And, remember, ETV Education provides FREE on-site Professional Development trainings and workshops with CCCCD credit! If you are interested in hosting one of our on the road workshops in 2019 please contact Kimberly Singletary:  or (803)730-4553.
