WVIA Public Media is pleased to announce that PNC Bank has donated $7,000 through the Pennsylvania Educational Improvement Tax Credit Program to support WVIA's Educational Services. WVIA provides educational television programming to its member schools, by delivering a vast inventory of high quality curriculum-based programming. WVIA is addressing standards and learning objectives directly to our member schools through professional development, academic centered competition, and other educational resources. WVIA is uniquely positioned to provide multimedia services, and has been a leader in the use of new technology as it has evolved from film, through videotape, two-way distance learning over ISDN, to Web-streaming and podcasting. WVIA Public Media - listed as Northeast Pennsylvania Educational Television Association-WVIA - is a scholarship organization under the state Department of Community and Economic Development's Education Improvement Tax Credit program. The program gives companies an opportunity to support quality agencies working to educate children.
