    The Story Goes | Willie Burroughs | SAISD

    The San Antonio Independent School District (SAISD), has 48,289 students enrolled in the current school year. When the COVID-19 crisis came to San Antonio, SAISD worked quickly to expedite a 5-year plan to put chromebooks/laptops in the hands of each student across the district. And it's working. SAISD has engaged 94% of their students since the start of shelter-in-place. Willie Burroughs, SAISD's Chief Operations Officer and proud Dad of a student at Young Men's Leadership Academy, shares how this was done and why it's so critical to student success in San Antonio.
