A north-central Indiana school district plans to equip all of its school buses with wireless Internet access.

Kokomo-Center Schools' will spend nearly $200,000 on a GPS tracking system for all 65 district buses, another $125,000 to install WI-FI and then $5,000 annually to pay for the service.

A Federal grant will help to pay for the service.

The district plans to issue every student a laptop within three years.
