BOISE, Idaho -- A task force created to help implement public schools chief Tom Luna's plan to increase technology in the classroom will convene Monday and Tuesday in Boise.
The meeting will include discussion of a survey on Idaho's plan to phase in laptops for high school teachers and students.
The move is part of new education changes that were signed into law earlier this year with backing from Luna and Idaho Gov. C.L. "Butch" Otter. The education laws carry sweeping changes for Idaho schools and will go before voters in November 2012.
The meetings of the Students Come First task force are being held in the Idaho Statehouse Auditorium.
