Gray Television’s CW affiliate WUAB-TV Cleveland launched "CMSD with CW43" on April 20 with Cleveland Metropolitan School District to bring students into a televised classroom throughout the school closures due to the global pandemic.

The four-hour daily program airs Monday through Friday. The grade-specific lessons help local teachers reach students without access to home computers.

“Distance learning via computers has been a great option for safely keeping students on track, but we identified a need for students who may not have access to a home computer or laptop,” WUAB General Manager Erik Schrader said. “ Every broadcaster has a responsibility to help their community in a time of crisis. We’re proud to be a part of it.”
