Include any other comments or information you want the Commission to consider in evaluating your compliance with the Children's Television Act (or use this space for supplemental explanations). This may include information on any other noncore educational and informational programming that you aired this quarter or plan to air during the next quarter, or any existing or proposed non-broadcast efforts that will enhance the educational and informational value of such programming to children. See 47 C.F.R. Section 73.671, NOTES 2 and 3. --Partners in Education with a local elementary school. --School Tours - AEA River Hills School, YWCA Wize Girls, North Star Tours --School Talk Weekly feature live during the morning newscast which is focusing on Cedar Valley schools. --Several employees are mentors for local students. --KWWL employees speak extensively at elementary and secondary schools throughout the market. --On September 1, 2018, core programs The Voyager with Josh Garcia, Wilderness Vet, Journey with Dylan Dreyer, Naturally, Danny Seo, and Health, Happiness With Mayo Clinic were preempted from their regularly scheduled times at 9:00 AM to 11:00 AM to air breaking news coverage of the funeral proceedings of American hero and Senator John McCain. The late-breaking nature of his passing and scheduling of his funeral service were beyond the control of the station and made it impracticable for the station to reschedule The Voyager with Josh Garcia, Wilderness Vet, Journey with Dylan Dreyer, Naturally, Danny Seo, and Health, Happiness With Mayo Clinic --One or more episodes of children programming that was preempted during the quarter was not rescheduled. The Digital Core Programming Summary section of this report would not permit the station to include preemption reports for such unrescheduled preemptions, and FCC Staff has advised that no preemption report for such unrescheduled episodes is necessary.
