The Nevada Department of Education (NDE), Nevada State Library, Archives and Public Records (NSLA), along with Renaissance are partnering to support reading for all students by providing access to myON digital literacy resources for grades PK-12, at no cost to students. This initiative is led by the NDE Student Achievement Division and NSLA, with collaboration from across NDE and support from external partners.
Students and teachers will have unlimited, 24/7 access to the following myON digital resources:
Thousands of enhanced digital titles (fiction, nonfiction, graphic novels, and more) at a wide range of reading levels. Flexible reading scaffolds and student-centered literacy tools support close reading and writing skills.
Daily news articles presented at three levels, written for students and reviewed by a child psychologist for age-appropriateness. Articles include audio, multi-media resources, and recommended books from the digital library for extended learning opportunities
Individual student accounts are being set up prior to the start of the summer for students who are not already reading on the platform. Students who attend schools that are already using myON are encouraged to continue reading over the summer using their existing student accounts.
Accounts for teachers, librarians/specialists, building administrators, and district administrators are also being set up for those schools and districts that are not already using myON.
Resources for Families
We appreciate the efforts of families to encourage students to read outside of school time all year long.
If you have questions about your student’s myON account, please reach out to your district representative who is listed on this page under “myON Questions.”
Resources for Schools and Districts
A collection of engagement resources is available to schools and districts to support the launch of this initiative and encourage student reading throughout the summer.
