The Board recognizes that instructional television can provide educational experiences and cultural involvement for students and adults alike. Therefore, the Board endorses the use of instructional television as an integral part of the school curriculum when practical.
When using instructional television in addition to general curriculum materials, a teacher should keep in mind that the program should be suitable to the maturity level of the students, and that the subject matter should be of specific interest to the class curriculum.
Cultural and enrichment television presentations of general interest to the community may also be used for instructional purposes to supplement the curriculum materials. Before recommending the viewing of such a program, the teacher should ascertain that the format and content of the program is suitable for students.
