LIMESTONE COUNTY, Ala. (WAFF) - From our news partners at the Athens News Courier, after five years, Limestone County is pulling the plug on a program that lets students take MacBook computers home with them.

They say the cost of replacing and repairing lost and broken laptops is just too expensive.

Instead, starting in the fall, laptops will stay at schools, and students will have to check the out when they need to use them.

The school system approved a plan to sell 500 of the MacBooks to cover the cost of a new smart charge cart system.
