LIMESTONE COUNTY, AL (WAFF) -

Students at one Limestone County school will get new tools to help them in the classroom.

On Thursday, 139 third and fourth grade students at Blue Springs Elementary will get new laptops. This is the beginning phase of the Limestone County School District's "Digital Passport Initiative."

Students will use the laptops in the classroom to advance learning.

School leaders said adding new technology to the classroom increases test scores and student attendance.

The students' parents paid a $25 user fee for the computers.
