Wi-Fi Equipped School Buses to Prepare Students for Homeschooling
School Bus Fleet
As many schools across the U.S. transition to online learning due to closures brought about by the Coronavirus (COVID-19), some districts are using Wi-Fi equipped school buses to ensure students have internet access. In South Carolina, the State Department of Education (SCDE) is placing Wi-Fi-enabled school buses or mobile hotspots in various school districts across the state, according to Virgie Chambers, the deputy superintendent for the SCDE’s division of district operations and support. Chambers announced the initiative on Monday in a letter sent to school district superintendents and transportation directors.
