Capstone Digital has announced CARE (Capstone Assisting Remarkable Educators), a $2 million grant program focused on improving literacy in schools.

As a result of the massive cuts in federal government programs, including the Improving Literacy through School Libraries Program, all K-12 public, private, parochial or charter schools in the United States are encouraged to apply for more than $2 million in matching CARE grants towards the purchase of myON reader, a personalized literacy environment that focuses on increasing student literacy rates.

The CARE matching grant program will match schools funding dollar for dollar towards the purchase of myON reader, an online personalized literacy environment that matches student interests and reading levels to a recommended book list with more than 1,100 digital books. myON reader provides students with an online environment where they have access to a large digital library with reading supports, gives teachers access to  personalize reading programs for their students, and gives administrators the ability to monitor and forecast reading growth based on class, grade, building and district.

The application and more information are available at
