Santa Fe school chosen for Google’s ‘Rolling Study Hall’ program

News

Google is helping local students turn commute time into learning time. 

The web company has chosen Milagro Middle School in Santa Fe to participate in its new “Rolling Study Hall” program. 

It’s an initiative that gives internet access to rural school buses to help students do their homework. 

“Today, 70 percent of teachers assign homework on the internet and over a third of families do not have internet access,” Google spokesperson Alex Sanchez said. 

Six of the school’s buses with the longest commute are participating in the program. 

Milagro is one of just 16 schools chosen by Google for the pilot program.
