Students in Sachse now have access to thousands of digital books and news articles.
Garland ISD announced its partnership with myON, an offshoot of educational software Renaissance, at the end of this past school year. It’s currently open to everyone from Pre-K through 12th grade. Officials first began looking into myON in order to increase third grade literacy, a district goal.
The digital library is free and accessed through Ready Hub, students’ online school account.
“It’s super simple,” said Melissa Hill, GISD’s director of teaching and learning development. “All you need is your login and password, and then it’s open. There’s no limit to many books you can read.”
Books are also downloadable for readers without Wi-Fi. However, when downloading books the limit is 20.
