IXL Mathematics Tool
CASD is pleased to announce student access to IXL, a supplemental mathematics tool. The purpose of the tool is to provide students with an opportunity to stay engaged in mathematics over the summer and to reinforce the necessary skills for the upcoming school year. IXL skill plans can help students prepare for PSAT, SAT, PSSA, and Keystone Exams. CASD students will continue to use IXL during the 2022-23 school year.
