Renaissance Provides Georgia Students Unlimited Access to Digital Books and News Articles with Summer Reading Program

Renaissance is providing access to thousands of enhanced digital books and age-appropriate news articles this summer to all children, families, and educators in Georgia

Bloomington, Minn. (May 3, 2021)Renaissance, a global leader in pre-K–12 education technology, is providing children, families, and educators in Georgia unlimited free access to myON, Renaissance’s digital reading platform, from May 3–July 31, 2021, in partnership with Get Georgia Reading—Campaign for Grade-Level Reading.

Designed to get reading materials into the hands of students in the Peach State, the reading program will help children continue learning and growing throughout the summer months. Children, families, and educators can access digital books and news articles using myON through a shared log-in, and low-bandwidth and offline reading options will maximize the reach.

Throughout, Renaissance (@RenLearnUS) and Get Georgia Reading (@GetGAReading) will also publish live metrics on social media. In 2020, students read 1,196,588 minutes and completed 46,757 books.

“Renaissance’s long-term commitment has provided much-needed access to high-quality educational opportunities at home that’s available to every family in Georgia,” said Get Georgia Reading Campaign Director Arianne Weldon. “Their support could not have been more meaningful and essential this past year, and we’re so pleased that they continue to feed our children’s hunger for learning and reading.”

“It’s important students have access to high-interest reading materials,” said Alysse Daniels, Regional Vice President at Renaissance. “We’re thrilled to partner with Get Georgia Reading and keep students engaged in daily reading, preventing the summer slide.”

myON provides students with 24/7 access to thousands of fiction and nonfiction books and news articles—in English, Spanish, and additional languages. Georgia schools and districts that opt to provide their students with year-round, personalized myON accounts after the free summer program get access to even more ways to build reading and writing skills, including close reading tools, customizable literacy projects, and a large collection of titles to support lesson plans across all subject areas.
