The mission of KLRN is to open a world of lifelong learning through trustworthy and enriching programs on-air, online and in our community.
Dear Families,

At KLRN, our mission is to open a world of lifelong learning through trustworthy and enriching programs on-air, online and in our community. During these times of uncertainty, we continue to look for creative ways to provide learning opportunities for your family while at home. As always, we are proud to be a resource for educators, parents, and caregivers especially during these times when schools are closed and children are home for extended periods of time. Working together, we can navigate these challenging times through keeping young minds in our communities engaged.

We continue to obtain resources from PBS LearningMedia to help the learning at home. You can find many here, and we encourage you to set up a free PBS LearningMedia login to create folders, share ideas online. Need help navigating this awesome resource? Please see the bottom of this page labeled PBS LearningMedia Resources. 

Be sure to visit and connect with us at with anything you would like to learn more about.

With Appreciation,
The KLRN Education Team
