Roseville Area Schools Educational Access Channel 18 became operational during the spring of 1984 and has since provided live coverage of School Board Meetings, Special Events programming,and varsity sporting events. Channel 18 transmits programming and text 24 hours a day from the Roseville Area Schools District Center.
A team of student volunteers from Roseville Area Middle & High Schools make up the "623 Productions" crew, coordinated and supervised by Wayne M. Powers -Supervisor of Infrastructure and Cable Support Services. Students from this group are also involved in a variety of public access projects in association with CTV-Roseville, the public access arm of the North Suburban Cable Commission.
Students participating in television productions with the 623 Productions group can earn a letter.
