Hillsborough "myON" users read more than 1-million books



Children in Hillsborough County read 1,016,046 digital books in just six months as part of the Read on myON project, the school district announced Thursday.

Through a partnership between the district, the Hillsborough County Children’s Board and other public agencies, all children have access to myON, a personalized literacy program focused on increasing student reading growth.
Children can choose to read, rate, and review based on their reading level and interests. The program also tracks how much time children are reading, the number of books opened, the number of books read, and other features that help teachers assess their progress.
“The level of our students’ engagement is incredible,” said Superintendent MaryEllen Elia. “We are thrilled to see our entire community come together to promote literacy, help provide opportunities for children, and cultivate a new love for reading even with the youngest of children.”
