About 11 News Weather Class

KKTV 11 News has created a program called KKTV 11 News Weather Class to give teachers in our local schools another tool in teaching about the weather.  These courses are each taught by a member of the Breaking Weather Team: Brian Bledsoe, Emily Roehler, Lucy Bergemann, or Jordan Sherman.  The presentations and materials are free.  There is no cost to your school.
