Every Kid in Georgia Has Access to

8,000 Free Books this Summer

Calling all kids in Georgia!

Start limbering up your fingers, because this summer Get Georgia Reading and myON are delivering more than 8,000 books to your computer and mobile devices that you can access 24 hours a day, every day through Aug. 30. It’s like having your own personal library right at your fingertips.

Hey, parents, teachers, and librarians, we want you to join the fun, too.

You can search from more than 50 different categories and genres, fiction and nonfiction books, picture books, graphic novels, chapter books, titles for struggling and reluctant readers, and Spanish and bilingual titles.

What’s popular so far this year? It looks like Georgia kids favor nonfiction. The top titles are:

  • Scary Ghosts,
  • Great White Sharks: On the Hunt,
  • King of Pop: The Story of Michael Jackson, and
  • Anacondas: On the Hunt.

During summer 2014, Georgians read 3,246 books and spent 845 hours and 11 minutes reading. This year, we’ve already read 8,198 books and spent 1,727 hours reading, and summer break hasn't even started.

The Challenge

Our challenge for you is to light up your community on this heat map:

 

We’ll keep our eye on who’s reading the most. Cedartown is in the lead right now, with 14,957 sessions (they’re that dark blue dot on the top left of the heat map). Kingsland, Valdosta, Dallas, and Jonesboro hold the number 2 through 5 slots.

Cook Primary School Receives 5 Star Rating!

     March 16, 2015 – The Georgia Department of Education today released its first School Climate Star Ratings. The 2014 ratings are based on survey results and data from the 2013-2014 school year.
     School climate refers to the quality and character of school life – the “culture” of a school. A sustainable, positive school climate fosters youth development and student learning, which are essential elements for academic success, career-skill improvement and overall quality of life. The School Climate Star Rating helps determine whether a school is on the right path to school improvement.

     “Research has shown us that school climate has a strong impact on
student achievement,” State School Superintendent Richard Woods said. “The data used to develop the 2014 Star Ratings proves this once again. If your school has a positive climate, it’s giving students the environment they need to learn. You’ll likely see high achievement there – or a school that’s on the right track toward high achievement.” 
     Each school in Georgia received a 1-5 star ratings, with five stars representing an excellent school climate, and one star representing a school climate most in need of improvement.

5-star' schools ranked excellent according to the school climate index;

'4-star' schools ranked above average according to the school climate index;

'3-star' schools ranked average according to the school climate index;

'2-star' schools ranked below satisfactory according to the school climate index, or

'1-star' schools ranked unsatisfactory according to the school climate index.

“Students cannot learn in environments that do not support them,” Superintendent Woods said. “Georgia is committed to measuring the quality of its learning climates, and this aligned approach helps us assess that quality from preschool all the way through 12th grade.”
