WXXI HELPS STUDENTS PREPARE FOR THE 2011 REGENTS EXAMS WITH REGENTS REVIEW 2.0 BROADCASTS

Rochester, New York (April 25, 2011) – WXXI will broadcast Regents Review 2.0, a series of test-prep programs for high school students who plan to take the New York State Regents exams. The series will air weekdays from 4:30 - 5:30 p.m. on WXXI-TV (DT21.1/cable 1011 and 11) from May 2nd to May 18th, and in its overnight broadcast, perfect for recording, from 1 a.m. - 3 a.m. on select days from May 11th to June 3rd. It will also air on City 12 (cable 12) on select weekdays from 7- 8 p.m. from May 3rd to May 27th. Visit wxxi.org/education/k12/regents.html for a complete schedule.

This widespread television and web-based series features one-hour, in-depth review programs on thirteen different subjects – one program for each of the specific New York State curriculum areas tested annually through Regents exams. Hosted by master teachers, the shows are presented in a lively, interactive television format. The series is targeted primarily to high school students in grades 9 - 12 (ages 13 - 17), and their parents.  A large secondary audience of teachers and BOCES students is also reached through repeat TV show airings, classroom tape playback of programs, and through programs downloaded via the Regents Review web site.
