SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - San Francisco public schools are set to get another influx of money from Salesforce.com CEO Marc Benioff.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports (https://bit.ly/1ByngqF) that Benioff is donating $5 million to buy students’ iPads and Chromebooks, increase Wi-Fi access at schools, provide teacher training and pay for four full-time district technology instructors. An announcement about the new round of funding was expected to be made on Friday.

The money comes on top of $2.7 million Benioff pledged to San Francisco middle schools last year.
