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. 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 is specifically designed to further the educational and informational needs of children, has educating and informing children as a significant purpose, and otherwise meets the definition of Core Programming as specified in the Commission's rules.
