Creating a community of readers
Literacy for Life is a district initiative and community-wide partnership designed to foster the literacy needs of students. Together with our tri-cities family of Garland, Rowlett and Sachse, we are working to encourage a love of reading in our community. We encourage reading in our district by:
- providing 24/7 access to a personalized online library.
- expanding bilingual programs
- increasing dyslexia services
- using a balanced approach in teaching literacy
To help our community have more access to reading materials, we've partnered with myONRenaissance® to provide access to myON®, a free digital reading library.
With myON, students can read daily news and thousands of books matching their interests and reading levels. Community members of all ages can also register to get free access through shared accounts, no matter if they attend our district or not.
