Literacy for Life

Literacy for Life is a district initiative and community-wide partnership designed to foster the literacy needs of students. Along with the tri-cities of Garland, Rowlett and Sachse, we are working to create a community of readers.

We aim to encourage everyone in the community to read by using a balanced approach in teaching literacy, expanding bilingual programs, increasing dyslexia services and providing 24/7 access to a personalized online library.  

Trustees' favorite books

As part of the Literacy for Life celebration, our superintendent, Dr. López, and members of the GISD Board of Trustees each shared a favorite book. See what they have to say about how these books impacted their lives.



To offer added resources and increase reading engagement, GISD has partnered with Renaissance® to provide access to myON®. This partnership will provide students access to daily news articles and thousands of books that match their interests and reading levels. 

Additionally, Garland ISD will offer community members of all ages free access to myON Books through shared accounts.
