Building a Community of Readers

Forging strong partnerships with community organizations is a proven strategy for school leaders, focusing needed attention and resources on literacy to create a true community of readers. When community leaders and organizations support educational initiatives and programs, they require proof of effectiveness.

myON supports the development of strong community partnerships  

  • A cost-effective personalized literacy environment under an unlimited subscription gives learners and their families access to a complete digital library containing thousands of titles, along with recommended booklists that match their interests and Lexile® reading levels, to foster engagement and growth.
  • Titles are available on any web-enabled device, with downloads for offline reading via free mobile apps. These tools help support reading wherever learners and families want to read: at home, school, a library, community center, even in a park or on a bus.
  • Flexible scaffolds (including audio, text highlighting, a zoom feature and an embedded dictionary), along with a suite of literacy tools for close/active reading, support family engagement and allow children and families to read together, even if there isn’t a proficient adult reader in the household.
  • Embedded metrics provide data on reading activity and growth, which can be shared with families. Aggregate data is available for community partner reporting and accountability needs.
