Lewisboro District and Curriculum
Residents in the Town of Lewisboro will attend the Katonah-Lewisboro School District (KLSD) for K-12 education. Students in the district attend three elementary schools (K-5), one middle school (6-8), and one high school (9-12). All curricular benchmarks created by the KLSD meet the New York State Education Department (NYSED) standards. In 2011, NYSED adopted the Common Core State Standards (CCSS), a federal initiative designed to unify core subject instruction. With implementation of these standards, the state’s Common Core Learning Standards (CCLS) focus on modifying schools’ English language arts and mathematics programs.
We currently cover the following Lewisboro-area school district: Katonah-Lewisboro School District.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Lewisboro District Curriculum
Instruction in the elementary schools derives its foundation from the CCLS. Starting in kindergarten, students must demonstrate English language arts literacy, which highlights proficiency in the following areas: reading, writing, speaking, listening, foundational skills, and language standards. Additionally, the CCLS mathematics program emphasizes unit-based learning. Each student must meet developmentally appropriate benchmarks to perform at the next grade level.
Secondary curriculum provides adolescents with a gradual increase in rigor and elective course selections. Besides core academic instruction, students in the middle school have access to courses in art, technology, home and careers, physical education, general music, choir, orchestra, band, health, foreign languages, response to intervention (RtI), and special education. John Jay High School (JJHS) students have access to many of the same subjects as middle school students; however, many options that are more specialized exist for students in grades 9-12.

Chalk Talk: The Importance of Pedestrian Safety
Many students walk, bike, and skate to school. It is essential to provide them with a safe environment, one with access to sidewalks, crosswalks, crossing guards, and plenty of signs to warn drivers of their presence. Another important aspect of pedestrian safety is the responsibility of the pedestrian. Parents should teach their children, starting at a very young age, about traffic safety. All lessons should be developmentally appropriate, but it is never too early to teach about the dangers of motor vehicles. Very young children, such as babies and toddlers, should hear parents talk about cars, their dangers, and how children should never be in the street without an adult. As children age, they can begin to follow basic rules about street safety. Grade-school aged children should never go into the street to get a ball or other toy. They should hold hands with adults and wait for crossing guards to direct their actions. Older elementary and middle schoolchildren should follow all safety signs and crosswalk directives.
