The Katonah-Lewisboro Learning Commitment
In the KLSD, we will strive to create learning experiences for all students that are engaging, relevant, and take place in an active learning environment.

Dear KLSD Community,
Last night, we had a terrific Board of Education meeting that included two important presentations.
The first presentation showcased our District’s ongoing commitment to and leadership in sustainability. We heard from our always eloquent and passionate students and staff about their lessons and their activism. We learned also about the continued reduction of greenhouse gas emissions from our facilities. I encourage you to watch the meeting online to learn more.
The second presentation, from our District’s Facilities Committee, unveiled an exciting bond proposal that could support the next evolution of our five school buildings. The proposed plan, supported by our Board of Education, includes innovative educational upgrades, needed infrastructural work, and security enhancements at each school. You can read more about the proposal here and watch the entire presentation here. We will share much more information through the summer and into the fall.
As I noted last night, Monday marks the first time that all public schools throughout New York State are closed in honor of Juneteenth. The holiday, which celebrates the emancipation of enslaved people in our country, has been the subject of lessons across our elementary schools this week. There are also celebrations in our communities this weekend.
And finally, I wish all our KLSD dads a happy and healthy Father’s Day this Sunday.
Andrew Selesnick, Superintendent of Schools
