Homework Hotline has been a staple of the Vegas PBS catalog for many years. However over the last few years the student usage has declined drastically.
For the 2016-2017 school year, Innovative Learning Environments will continue to provide support to students calling the Homework Hotline (702.799.5111) during its regular scheduled hours of operation Monday through Thursday, 3:30 p.m. through 5:30 p.m. Callers will continue to receive homework support via phone, from the student tutors, but no live show will be produced. Data will be collected to determine the path for the 2017-18 school year.
