Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. The Magic School Bus is based on A series of children's books about science written by Joanna Cole. The show features the ingenious Ms. Frizzle, an elementary school teacher and intrepid explorer who piles her students into her Magic School Bus and takes them on amazing field trips to impossible locations. The goal of each field trip is to answer questions or learn many new things about the place the class visits. Each episode is a fact filled expedition to places as diverse as the solar system, the human body, or even inside weather systems. The bus transforms to suit the environment and the kids freely explore and share their learning with each other and with Ms. Frizzle, who nudges her students to "make connections" and answer their own questions with research. The class pet, Lizzie, a large lizard, accompanies the class on their field trips. The content of the show is appropriate for children from ages 4 to 9 and in addition to all the factual content, the children also have a socio-emotional problem to solve that is embedded into the story line. This program airs on the station's main digital channel.

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 of their favorite restaurant, and as large as the town itself. Children will see their worlds mirrored on the small screen. They will also observe alternative ways to handle stress, learning difficulties, and the variety of endless manners that the group mentality, when positively united, can spread good in the world. This program airs on the station's secondary digital channel.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Pearlie is an animated comedy series based on the children's book series Pearlie the Park Fairy by Wendy Harmer. Pearlie is an optimistic, light-hearted fairy who sees the good in everybody, but often gets into situations because her desire to help is larger than her capacity to deliver. Aimed for an audience within the 4-8 year old range, Pearlie focuses on the importance of following the rules, using good judgment and learning how to avoid getting into trouble. Since Pearlie was appointed by Fairy Head Quarters (HQ) to keep Jubilee Park in sparkling order she has constant challenges with her basic goal of keeping everyone happy and making sure the park functions smoothly. Pearlie's nemesis and cousin Saphira, often takes advantage of Pearlie's good nature which requires that Pearlie must also frequently outwit the park bully. In each episode, we see Pearlie approach new tasks and problems with a great deal of enthusiasm, but without the organization required to get the job done. Through plot developments and with the assistance of her friends, Opal and Jasper, she learns what to do and what not to do in each situation so the park can be restored to order. This program airs on the station's main digital channel.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Pearlie is an animated comedy series based on the children's book series Pearlie the Park Fairy by Wendy Harmer. Pearlie is an optimistic, light-hearted fairy who sees the good in everybody, but often gets into situations because her desire to help is larger than her capacity to deliver. Aimed for an audience within the 4-8 year old range, Pearlie focuses on the importance of following the rules, using good judgment and learning how to avoid getting into trouble. Since Pearlie was appointed by Fairy Head Quarters (HQ) to keep Jubilee Park in sparkling order she has constant challenges with her basic goal of keeping everyone happy and making sure the park functions smoothly. Pearlie's nemesis and cousin Saphira, often takes advantage of Pearlie's good nature which requires that Pearlie must also frequently outwit the park bully. In each episode, we see Pearlie approach new tasks and problems with a great deal of enthusiasm, but without the organization required to get the job done. Through plot developments and with the assistance of her friends, Opal and Jasper, she learns what to do and what not to do in each situation so the park can be restored to order. This program airs on the station's main digital channel.
