West Schools advancing early literacy through myON program

West Local Schools are advancing childhood literacy by giving students access to the myON literacy program.

myON provides access to the largest library of enhanced digital books with multimedia scaffolds to support student reading at all levels. West Superintendent Jeff Stricklett believes the program will pay dividends for their district in the coming years.

The program is part of a larger effort to use technology to promote literacy. As part of the program, new parents from the West School District will also receive myON access when they receive care at Southern Ohio Medical Center.

“This makes sure our students come in prepared,” Stricklett said. “myON puts thousands of books at the parents’ fingertips, all of which can be accessed through any mobile device.”
