BOISE -- Public schools chief Tom Luna plans to start his post-legislative tour in Nampa, where education officials will get an overview of how Idaho plans to phase in mobile computers for teachers and students.

Luna kicks off his tour Monday in southwestern Idaho, with additional stops planned in Idaho Falls, Pocatello, Burley, Coeur d'Alene and Moscow.

The state will roll out the laptop program this fall with a device for every high school teacher. Students in ninth through 12th grades will get the computers next fall, starting one-third of high schools, under reforms Luna proposed in 2011.

Lawmakers approved a series of revisions to Luna's education laws in the 2012 session, which ended in March. Luna will discuss tweaks to his "Students Come First" plan during his statewide tour this month.
