When the state closed all schools at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, we were not well situated to quickly pivot to an online learning environment. We had thousands of students who did not have access to a device or the internet.
Butler Radio Network opened their airways to us for an hour every day. BASD educators created elementary and secondary lessons that could be broadcast on the radio to reach all of our students.
The Pennsylvania Association of Broadcasters recently named WISR/WBUT's educational broadcasts that were done in collaboration with BASD an award winner in the "Outstanding Radio Feature/Series."
Congratulations to Butler Radio Network and everyone at BASD who created content for this series last spring on this well-deserved honor!
