The Iowa Speedway Foundation announced today that it will participate in funding to complete the purchase of iPads for all ninth through 12th grade students at Newton High School.
The announcement by the Speedway Foundation, a non-profit organization established by the Iowa Speedway to raise funds for charitable projects, was made jointly by Stan Clement, president of Iowa Speedway, and Debb Smith, director of the Foundation.
"We are delighted to help Newton High School acquire enough iPads so that every student will have access to these important learning devices," Clement said. "The new technology available today is necessary for learning, and we know iPads can help with classroom projects and advanced studies. In this day and age, school district budgets are tight, and we felt it was our duty to step up and help the school get to 100 percent of the number of iPads they needed."
Smith echoed Clement's comments.
"The Iowa Speedway Foundation exists for just such worthy investments as this one," she said. "We are very proud that we were able to provide funds to purchase the additional iPads so that no student is left behind."
