College & Career Ready

Common Core State Standards  

The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) were created to better prepare students with skills needed for college and careers. The English Language Arts standards focus on providing an integrated model for literacy, that aligns with myON.

Students can choose the books that they are interested in reading and are introduced to high quality, authentic digital content (70% non-fiction and 30% fiction) from trusted publishers.
