SCETV is committed to access, equity, and meeting the needs of 21st century learners. We are currently working to review all of our educational resources with the hopes of removing and/or updating any that could be viewed as insensitive or as omitting critical historical contexts. As we embark upon these review efforts, we will address concerns as they are shared with us from valued members of the community like you. We also welcome any additional comments about how we can facilitate thoughtful, engaging, and meaningful learning experiences in this area. You can share them at etveducation@scetv.org.


We strive to make sure as many assets as possible meet accessibility requirements.
