School districts use tablets to eliminate snow days

SOUTH CAROLINA -- Some school districts in South Carolina no longer have snow days.

No matter what the weather, officials say the students will continue to learn.

A pilot program in five school districts sends every student home with a Chromebook.

When inclement weather keeps them from coming into class, they log on from home to do their daily lessons.

Parents say it's a win all the way around -- their kids keep learning when they're forced to be at home, and they don't have to make up any days at the end of the school year.
