OSWEDO, Ill. (CBS) – Some school buses in Oswego will soon be online, reports WBBM’s Veronica Carter.

It’s a mobile world and some students spend hours on a school bus so giving them WiFi makes sense.

Oswego 308 Superintendent Matthew Wendt says the idea is to allow these kids that travel to get homework done while on the road.

“Activities and athletics and all the events that kids are engaged in, wrestling tournaments, track meets, volleyball tournaments, music concerts, often those start early in the morning for kids and often go through the late afternoon if not early evening,” said Wendt.

It’s a pilot program that’s been tested in Missouri and Arizona. A few of Oswego’s activities buses will have the hardware installed within the next couple of weeks.
