PRATTVILLE, Ala. (AP) -- More than 140 high schools in Alabama are partnering with Microsoft to add business software programs to their curriculum.

The Montgomery Advertiser (http://on.mgmadv.com/Tb0HkP ) reports that Alabama will become the 10th state to use Office software in a partnership with the company.

Gov. Robert Bentley made the announcement Tuesday at the Autauga County Technology Center in Prattville.

Bentley says technology partnerships with 143 schools in the state are essential as industries become increasingly tech-driven.

Students will have access to Microsoft Word, Excel and Power Point.
