Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Common through the episodes of this show is the intersection of sports with complex socio-political situations. This can be an effective means for connecting teenagers to situations of historical and contemporary political importance with which they are likely unfamiliar. Each story utilizes virtuous qualities of athletics - camaraderie, healthy lifestyle, self-empowerment - and demonstrates how these are common traits across humanity, allowing for connections to be made with those whose own personal experiences are extraordinarily different due to socio-economics, geography, or history. Sports are seen as a way to open oneself to a world of experiences leading to the development of a broader world view. The sports are participatory as are the experiences of the planet.

Pollution and abuse of these natural resources are taking their toll. Entire species of fish have disappeared, marine mammals are dying from ingesting plastic, and toxic waste in our waterways is destroying habitat and marine life. The "Aqua Kids" will be looking for adventure and knowledge, and along the way, tackle some ecological dilemmas. This group of knowledge-seeking kids will start right in their own backyards, beginning with local streams that eventually lead to the oceans of the world. By pointing out the problems they encounter, they hope to educate their peers on what they can do to solve these environmental dilemmas. In most cases, it is not too late to change the tide of destruction.

Does the Licensee publicize the existence and location of the station's Children's Television Programming Reports (FCC 398) as required by 47 C.F.R. Section 73.3526(e)(11)(iii)? Yes

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. KVNV was unable to broadcast children's educational/informational programming, or any other programming at all, from August 6, 2011, to August 30, 2011, due to technical difficulties which caused the station to go silent. On August 6, 2011, the station experienced a power interruption that forced KVNV to go silent. At that time, the licensee also decided to shift over to a newly acquired satellite dish in order to improve reliability of the station. While the transmission system of KVNV had been functioning properly, the station had experienced interruptions in program delivery due to problems with the prior satellite dish, as previously reported in the prior children's TV programming report. As a result, the Licensee made arrangements for acquisition and orientation of a larger satellite, which the licensee anticipated would provide more stable signal delivery and thus substantially reduce or eliminate future programming interruptions. As noted above, the station returned to operation on August 30. Shortly thereafter, however, the station again experienced technical difficultes, this time with the studio-transmitter link. These difficulties led to intermittant interruptions in programming, as the STL would perceive a problem with the power source, shut itself down, and re-boot. These issues extended for approximately the first week and a half of September until the source of the problem was discovered, and repairs were made. The listed programs described in this report were broadcast during this time period, but their viewing would have interrupted for approximately one minute about every five minutes. As indicated herein, however, despite these difficulties, KVNV was able to broadcast an average of over three hours per week of core programming.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. 9th Period is a weekly half-hour drama series for teens that teaches positive consequences of thought and action when combined with friendship's effective influences. This series is comprised of three friends who meet every day after school to discuss the day's events. Their exchanges are witty and on par with the subject matter of the social interaction that today's children experience. These three friends are more than friends, they are amateur sleuths. Each show presents a mystery that the children solve by the end of that show. Problem solving, working together toward a common goal, ethics, and morals are conveyed through the thoughts, words, and actions of these three characters: Peyton, Connor, and Meg. Every child will see him/herself in these characters. Peyton, Connor, and Meg share their daily trials and triumphs as they face the following together: bullies-both cyberspace and in your face- thievery, learning difficulties, family conflicts, adversity in and out of the classroom, homelessness, hidden agendas in places as small as the schoolyard to their favorite restaurant, and as large as the town itself.
