myON® Reader Implementation Planning

Adoption of a literacy environment happens on a continuum and takes careful implementation planning. Schools and districts must make decisions based on available resources and timing. We suggest using the following levels of implementation for myON Reader when making those decisions. Each of these levels could be a long- or short-term goal for your school or district depending on your specific needs and goals you have set.
