Math for Kindergarten-5th Grade
IXL is a comprehensive, standards-aligned math program offering unlimited practice in thousands of skills. One of the best things about IXL is that students can access it from school and from home! Students will be able to access IXL Math throughout the summer. Our subscription ends on August 1, 2014. Because we are planning on renewing our license, there shouldn’t be an interruption in accessibility. Students will be promoted in IXL about mid-July.This means that current 5th grade students will lose their account. Incoming kindergarten students will be added to IXL at the start of the 2014-2015 school year.

The proceeds are up to the discretion of each school and we only ask that they be earmarked for literacy, media and/or technology programs. In addition, we will offer a monetary bonus to the school in each division -elementary, middle and high school - that sells the most subscriptions.

Per our Student Handbook, we cannot take transportation changes through email, fax or the phone. All changes must be in writing. When a parent emails a transportation change to you, please let them know that we cannot accept it. If there is an emergency, we will try and work with the parent but emailing a change cannot be something that is done on a regular basis.
