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. In partnership with the Onondaga County Public Library System, CNYCentral does over-the-summer reading programs, with visits to branch libraries to encourage school-aged children to keep reading and stop knowledge and language skills loss while they're out of the classroom. This was our 26th year, and there were 18 presentations by on-air staffers. All staffers are also involved in age-appropriate interactions tht encourage skills as the academic steps in the career planning process, to help students get job ready, promoting language skills and math and understanding technology. We offer station tours, as well as day-long job shadows, and we offer internships in several areas of station operations for college credit. At all levels, we discuss social media and the possible negative consequences on school and career plans. Several staffers are also on advisory boards or are involved in organizations that encourage healthy life-choices.
