AISD Elementary Student At-Home Learning

NEW! Announcing......Early Childhood TV!
Amarillo ISD is adding some new resources to help families with young students during at-home learning. Families can tune in for quality, entertaining educational programming for elementary-age students that also aligns with the curriculum used in Texas schools. AISD’s Secret Classroom is a one-hour program of the same engaging lessons children would be learning in the classroom, delivered by AISD teachers. The Panhandle PBS and Amarillo ISD At-Home Learning Hours feature programs like Xavier Riddle and Molly of Denali, which reinforce learning in math, history and literacy.

  • Episodes will be repeated at 9 a.m. on Wednesdays and Fridays on NewsChannel 10 Too
