myON and Oxnard School District are joining forces to reach the district’s goal of having students read one billion words by the end of summer 2016.
The challenge provides access to thousands of books through myON’s cloud-based personalized literacy platform in order to reduce the effect of summer slide, as well as to encourage the love of reading for life-long learning. With myON, the district has access to time spent reading and statistics on the number of words and books read.
As part of an incentive program, students earn prizes for the time spent reading, which includes certificates, gift cards, bracelets, a treat at lunch, and/or lunch with the superintendent. Students are encouraged to read on their personal devices using myON or manually log hours spent reading on a reading log.
