HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

With a digital transition comes "across-the-board" training.

Teachers at Huntsville City Schools trained Thursday with the new equipment.

They gathered at Columbia High School with the new laptops.

Instructors are helping teachers learn the new teaching system.

It's the first year that laptops will replace most textbooks - a move by the city to continue the digital advancement of public education.

"Well, one of the things about the digital curriculum, you've got to remember, that the laptop is the delivery system," said Keith Ward, spokesperson for Huntsville City Schools. "You've got the old fashioned; the textbook where you've got the material there. The laptop is just the device that delivers the curriculum."

Each student will also receive a laptop for school use.

Huntsville City Schools start back Monday.
