A special note regarding IPad Technology:

In prior years, the Ironia PTO Grant Committee has been fortunate enough to be able to purchase IPads for those wishing to use them in the classroom.  Given the overwhelming success of their use, the number of IPads requested has increased each year.  In conjunction with the Districts technology initiative, Ironia re-allocated a portion of the 2015-2016 technology budget to purchase 14 IPads that were initially requested through the Grant Program!  Thank you Ironia!
