KLSD sends emails to families from two different addresses: alerts@klschools.org and email@blackboard.com. Please check your junk or spam folders and add these sending domains to your list of accepted email senders.
We are pleased to announce that after almost two years of looking for a tenant for Lewisboro Elementary School, the KLSD Board of Education has reached a tentative agreement with the Town of Lewisboro to rent approximately 20% of the vacant school's space for use as town offices and police headquarters. MORE.
Please note that the Katonah-Lewisboro School District offices have moved to the John Jay High School campus, 60 North Salem Road, Cross River.

To find these links in IXL, students need to either:
1) Log into www.ixl.com/signin/klsd using username and password (example pretend student login is: username: jfisher22 and password: 284453Jf), click on the ‘State Standards’ tab, choose NY, and choose their grade level, click on the link as titled below.
OR
2) Directly click on a link below (this will be easier for students). However, if clicking directly on the link below, this will take you to www.ixl.com the general website, not the URL specific to KLSD. Therefore, if clicking directly on the link below there is a slightly different method of logging in. Instead of simply using username to log in, student needs to enter username@klsd in the username field (example pretend student login is: username: jfisher22@klsd and password: 284453Jf).
Student MUST log in. If student does not log in, then his/her responses to the math questions do not get logged, and the student will face a limit of only being able to answer 20 questions per day. If the student logs in, then s/he can solve an unlimited number of problems.
Login box is at the top, towards the left. Again, student MUST log in. Even though they can solve problems without being logged in, they need to log in so that they don't face the 20 question limit and so that their progress in each module can be logged in the Reports tab of IXL (that's a tab on the top navigation bar of IXL).
Modules should be followed in consecutive order as listed below.
The following are modules in IXL.com that correspond with EngageNY’s 5th grade Common Core Math module 1 http://www.engageny.org/resource/grade-5-mathematics-module-1
Grade 5 Module 1: Place Value and Decimal Fractions
5NBT.1 Recognize that in a multi-digit number, a digit in one place represents 10 times as much as it represents in the place to its right and 1/10 of what it represents in the place to its left.
5NBT.2 Explain patterns in the number of zeros of the product when multiplying a number by powers of 10, and explain patterns in the placement of the decimal point when a decimal is multiplied or divided by a power of 10. Use whole-number exponents to denote powers of 10.
5MD.1 Convert among different-sized standard measurement units within a given measurement system (e.g., convert 5 cm to 0.05 m), and use these conversions in solving multi-step, real world problems.
5NBT.3 Read, write, and compare decimals to thousandths.
5NBT.3.a Read and write decimals to thousandths using base-ten numerals, number names, and expanded form, e.g., 347.392 = 3 × 100 + 4 × 10 + 7 × 1 + 3 × (1/10) + 9 × (1/100) + 2 × (1/1000).
5NBT.3.b Compare two decimals to thousandths based on meanings of the digits in each place, using >, =, and < symbols to record the results of comparisons.
5NBT.4 Use place value understanding to round decimals to any place.
5NBT.7 Add, subtract, multiply, and divide decimals to hundredths, using concrete models or drawings and strategies based on place value, properties of operations, and/or the relationship between addition and subtraction; relate the strategy to a written method and explain the reasoning used.
The following are modules in IXL.com that correspond with EngageNY’s 5th grade Common Core Math module 2 http://www.engageny.org/resource/grade-5-mathematics-module-2.
Grade 5 Module 2: Multi-Digit Whole Number and Decimal Fraction Operations
5OA.1 Use parentheses, brackets, or braces in numerical expressions, and evaluate expressions with these symbols.
5OA.2 Write simple expressions that record calculations with numbers, and interpret numerical expressions without evaluating them.
5NBT.5 Fluently multiply multi-digit whole numbers using the standard algorithm.
5NBT.6 Find whole-number quotients of whole numbers with up to four-digit dividends and two-digit divisors, using strategies based on place value, the properties of operations, and/or the relationship between multiplication and division. Illustrate and explain the calculation by using equations, rectangular arrays, and/or area models.
Division: Choose numbers with a particular quotient (Fifth grade - H.14)
