Local school district's new reading program to debut WiFi on school buses

    (MGN Online) 

    San Antonio Independent School District students riding the bus this year may get to enjoy the district's new reading program that will bring WiFi to multiple buses.

    The Rolling Readers program will bring Biblio Tech, Bexar County's online library, to the buses so students can download books, magazines, movies and more to their digital devices. Seven of the district's buses will be receiving the WiFi hotspots.

    "In June, Book Buddies had about 1,400 books that were available to distribute," Nathan Graf, SAISD's senior executive director of transportation said. "We sent some of our drivers over there to distribute these books to about 600 kids in summer school, and the kids loved the books. It was just incredible."

    If needed, digital devices can be checked out so all students can participate.
