KC Star: “Stepping aboard a school bus will soon be the same as taking a seat in class for some students in the North Kansas City schools. In January, the district will begin wiring four school buses that are used for longer trips with Wi-Fi access. It’s believed to be the first such effort locally.” Each is designed as a 32 station network allowing students to work on long rides.
Continuing: “In addition, Waterman plans to provide access to the district’s Internet service (Verizon) to make sure traveling students can call up things like E-Campus Learning or preparation for ACT, SAT or Advanced Placement tests. Or they simply could use the time to do research for assignments.”
