The newly redesigned bus features special interactive educational material, including 11 interactive tablets, a smart TV, and a classroom area, along with an HD production studio and selfie station.

On Tuesday. the bus stopped at both Boardman and Poland High Schools. 

To help welcome the tour local officials, including gubernatorial candidate Senator Joe Schiavoni (Ohio State Representative - D-33), as wells as Township and Village Trustees, Financial managers, and others gathered.

C-SPAN established the C-SPAN Bus community outreach program on Nov. 2, 1993, to ask community members for their opinions on matters the affect their daily lives.
