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 students, RAHS Alumni and community volunteers make up the 623 Productions crew, which is directed by Wayne M. Powers, supervisor of Infrastructure and Cable Services. Students and community volunteers 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, which can ve viewed on both mobile (tablet or phone) and desktop platforms (Mac or PC).
Events such as Pops or RAHS concerts air on the Monday or the earliest day after the Channel 18 playback copy becomes available. Subsequent airings will follow.
Varsity sports Recorded coverage normally airs at Noon & 7 pm the day after the event, with some exceptions due to scheduling. Subsequent playbacks will air after that date.
