#TexasReadsON — Rebuilding Our Communities

As families begin to rebuild and schools open their doors again, we are pleased to continue our efforts working with districts that have implemented myON as part of their literacy efforts. Many districts affected by the storm have partnered with myON to provide continued access such as Houston ISD, Austin ISD, and Beaumont ISD. 

Contact myON to learn if your school or district has myON.

Throughout the state many organizations, schools, and partners have also reached out through donations, volunteering, and resources.

Relief centers or other locations in need of continued access to myON and support are asked to please contact us. We want to continue supporting our Texas families and will do all we can while moving forward with our business of rebuilding and growing in literacy.

About myON 

With myON, children can read digital books and daily news articles written just for them, wherever they are and whenever they want or need to read. 

Here's what's available right from their dashboards and how it works: 

  • Thousands of digital books with optional audio, dictionary and a suite of tools allow readers to highlight and annotate in their own version of the text.    
  • Five daily news articles written just for students, with multimedia resources including maps, videos and photo galleries, plus recommended digital books for further exploration into topics of interest.
  • Unlimited 24/7 access means there's no limit to the number of books or articles students can read, and no limit to the number of times they can read the same book or article. 
  • All reading activity is captured within each student's account, including the amount of time they spend reading, so they can see their progress and share it with their families.
