LAS VEGAS, April 23, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- The Las Vegas Review-Journal and Cox Communications are using their digital platforms to share special programming led by Clark County School District (CCSD) educators featuring lessons at all grade levels.

"With the recent decision of Governor Sisolak to close Nevada schools through the remainder of the academic year, the importance of finding an alternative way to help educate the children of Southern Nevada is now more critical than ever," said Cox Las Vegas Vice President and Market Leader Michael F. Bolognini. "We're proud to provide our broadcast platform and YurView community channel to share this important educator-created content to students and families in an effort to maintain learning through the end of the school year."
Programming begins Monday, May 4 and will run through the end of the CCSD school year. The YurView broadcast schedule is 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. daily except for Saturday, May 9 and 16 when the broadcast will air from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. and 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.

"We recognize the importance of a remote curriculum that paves the way for educational success."
"As we extend distance learning until the end of the school year, it is important to provide more resources for our CCSD students and families," said Superintendent Dr. Jesus F. Jara. "We appreciate the partnership with Cox Communications and the Las Vegas Review-Journal to provide programming to our students."
