Extending the School Day with myON
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 they want or need to read. Often, this additional practice time occurs outside of the school day — before or after school, over the weekends and during school breaks, including summer. Here are some of the key ways myON supports extended learning.
Resources & Support
Program planning and staff development
Resources for program staff enable the development and deployment of customized implementation plans that meet specific needs and goals of each program and the learners served.
Our Professional Services Team provides initial and ongoing support designed to help you meet and exceed your program goals.
Outreach and awareness
Robust communications build excitement, interest and engagement among students, families and other supportive adults. Sharing information about your implementation through media is an effective strategy as shown in the examples below from the Hillsborough County, Florida Read on myON initiative.
- Collective Impact - The Power of Partnership
- Chief Bennett of Tampa Police Promotes Reading PSA
- Evan Longoria Promotes Summer Reading PSA
Materials and suggested activities
From after-school programs that provide in-school support between 3 and 5 pm, to community-based programs in Housing Authorities, Y’s, Boys & Girls Clubs, local public libraries and more, myON provides materials, strategies and support to program staff to help ensure successful outcomes for all. Here’s a sampling of resources that have been designed for use anywhere students are engaged in a program that supports their literacy and learning.
Our Educator Resources website contains guides, video tutorials, activities and other resources for teachers and out-of-school program staff.
