Indiana school district providing dozens of Wi-Fi buses for students without internet


August 14, 2020

The district is sending out 35 buses with Wi-Fi for students who don't have internet access.

(CNN) - A school district in Indiana, trying to ensure all students have access to the internet for virtual learning, said it's sending 35 WiFi-equipped buses across town during school hours.

The South Bend Community School Corporation, the fourth-largest school district in Indiana according to its website, last week announced schools would offer digital-only learning for at least the first eight weeks of the school year, which started Wednesday.

The school is parking buses in designated areas that lack internet service, the district said in a statement, "near benches or covered areas." Students aren't allowed on the bus, for safety and health reasons.
