Hapeville Charter Middle School in Fulton County, Georgia, began using myON during the 2016-2017 school year to helpful ll their number one school-wide initiative – increasing reading activity and skills among all students in grades six through eight.
“When it comes to reading, some kids just feel intimidated, but myON drew the kids in,” said Jerilyn Robinson, Curriculum Assistant Principal. “They are reading things they like and are interested in. They’ve been pulled into getting that spark, that love, for reading.”
Using myON for personalized learning has been extremely successful for this Title I school, where all students read for at least 20 minutes per day. Individually, students set goals and monitor their progress. Those who need further academic support (the “Rising 30”) are supported by mentor teachers or administrators who frequently monitor student progress.
