623 Cable Productions

Providing Cable Coverage of District Events

Since 1984, the district's Educational Access Channel 18 has provided live coverage of student events, varsity sports, and School Board meetings. Channel 18 transmits 24 hours a day. A team of middle and high school student volunteers make up the 623 Productions crew, which is directed by Wayne M. Powers, supervisor of Infrastructure and Cable Support.  Students from this production group are also involved in public access projects in association with CTV-Roseville, the public access arm of the North Suburban Cable Commission.


  • All school board meetings air live on their scheduled date. They are replayed that same week, Wednesday through Sunday, at 9:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. unless otherwise noted. The board has archived copies of its taped meetings.

  • Events such as Pops or RAHS concerts air on the Monday or the earliest day after the Channel 18 air copy becomes available. Subsequent airings will follow.

  • a "LIVE STREAM" of programming currently playing on Roseville Area Schools Cable Channel 18 is available 24/7 via streamup.com

  • Varsity sports coverage airs at 7 p.m. the day after the event. Subsequent playbacks are scheduled after that date.
