A school district in South Carolina is trying to get rid of snow days by giving students assignments online when conditions make it impossible to get to school. 

On Facebook, the Anderson County School District 5 said it was selectees to pilot the first eLearning program in South Carolina. 

By October or November of this year, all K-12 students will have a Chromebook, and assignments can be uploaded to the devices while they are at school. 

The assignments can then be accessed without an internet connection so kids who live without one can still participate in the assignments. 

With no snow days, students will no longer have to stay late for make-up days in the summer.
