DAVENPORT, Iowa (KWQC) The COVID-19 shutdown brought about the longest-ever spring break for students and ultimately cut short the school year. The impact of lost learning has everyone concerned.

With this in mind, KWQC-TV6 has proudly partnered with United Way, area school districts, and cultural institutions to bring about "TV6 Cares: Learn United Quad Cities".

Cultural institutions, like the RME, are offering up music labs similar to what the school districts are doing. You can view those on TV6's livestream at 9:30 a.m. or by selecting the videos above titled "RME Music Lab".

KWQC-TV6 is giving airtime to local teachers who will present lessons on TV6 during the Paula Sands Live time slot from 3 p.m. - 4 p.m.* each weekday. This was originally slated through the end of May. However, this special programming has BEEN EXTENDED to run through June 12th!

Fourteen different school districts---with more to come---will be offering lessons; this includes every single school district in both Scott and Rock Island counties.

Here is the upcoming lesson/school schedule (for now). Stay tuned for the unveiling of weeks 4 & 5 to be published soon.

The idea for this project came from KWQC-TV6's sister station in Cleveland, OH, Cleveland19 News where they have been airing lessons for Ohio children for the last few weeks.

In fact, if you are interested in having your children exposed to additional lesson plans, please click here for more teaching segments produced by Cleveland Metropolitan School District as aired on Cleveland19 News.

*The "Learn United Quad Cities content will also be rebroadcast on Cozi TV at 8:00 a.m. the next day, followed by an hour of educational content produced by Cleveland Metropolitan School District (from Cleveland19 News).

Special thanks go out to the United Way of the Quad Cities for putting together this powerful partnership between KWQC, the schools, and the cultural institutions to create a project for the benefit of all Quad Citizens.
