Austin ISD Radio Shows Expand to the Small Screen
AISD Channel 22 to televise Breaking Down the Barriers and Educa Austin
Austin ISD's radio programs Breaking Down the Barriers and Educa Austin are expanding to television.
Beginning in April, AISD Channel 22 will televise episodes of both shows.
"We're really excited to take another step forward with our education programming and add video to our wonderful AISD staff-produced radio shows," said Reyne Telles, AISD executive director of communications and community engagement.
AISD is constantly looking for new ways to reach an increasingly diverse parent and student population and promote the resources it offers students and their families.
"Expanding the ways we communicate is essential for AISD to be inclusive of every family we serve, regardless of how they want to receive educational content," Telles said.
Breaking Down the Barriers focuses on AISD's African American community. The show is produced in collaboration with KAZI Community Radio and has aired on KAZI-FM 88.7 since November 2013.
Educa Austin aims to better engage Spanish-language-dominant families by eliminating language and cultural barriers. The program has aired on KLQB-FM 104.3 since May 2012.
Both programs will retain their current radio schedules (see below). The new TV schedules are viewable below and on Channel 22's website athttp://aisdtv.blogspot.com/.
AISD's Department of Communications and Community Engagement is excited to be able to offer quality education programming to Austin's multicultural community and encourages families to watch.
Austin ISD TV programming is viewable on Roku players, through Grande Communications and Time Warner on channel 22 and AT&T UVerse on channel 99.
