Extending the School Day

To develop and improve their literacy skills, learners need time to practice reading with books that are at their level, meet their interests and are available anytime, on any web-enabled device. Often, this additional practice time occurs outside of the school day: before or after school, over the weekends and during school breaks.

myON’s all-inclusive site license supports extended learning time for PreK–12

  • Each learner’s account provides unlimited access to a virtual bookshelf available wherever and whenever they log into myON: at school, in an after-school program, at a library or at home.
  • Learners can read books offline that they have previously downloaded to mobile devices. Their reading data and bookmarks sync when they log back into their myON accounts online.
  • Flexible scaffolds allow learners to read independently, even when an educator or other assistance is not immediately available.
  • Learners can read with their families and share the activity records and reading data available from their dashboards, strengthening the connection between families, homes and schools.
