Learn at Home with MontanaPBS

MontanaPBS will dedicate its daytime weekday schedule to Montana state standards-aligned educational programming provided by MontanaPBS and the Office of Public Instruction. The 6:30am to 5:30pm weekday schedule includes specific blocks of time for pre-K through 8th grade levels and covers subjects including language arts, social studies, science and math. MontanaPBS’ regular primetime schedule is not affected by this change.
