INDIANAPOLIS – The Indiana Department of Education announced a partnership with myON today to make thousands of titles available to students taking part in Indiana’s Migrant Education Program. More than 5,000 titles are available to students. These supplemental materials span from beginning reader to post graduate readability. The materials are being utilized to enhance reading and writing instruction for migrant students during regular school year and summer programs around the state. During the beginning stages of implementation, Indiana’s migrant students have read more than 26,000 online e-books and spent more than 4,000 hours reading selections from myON’s digital library.

The Department selected myON as a teaching tool for migrant students because of its user-friendly interface and data collection tools which can be used to guide instruction. myON tracks reading growth online by providing a test and benchmarks to fulfill the federal requirement for Measurable Program Outcomes for reading proficiency. The migrant education program is funded entirely with federal funds.
