Our school district has been provided a license for a literacy program called Read&Write, a toolbar with over 20 tools that help students read, write, and study independently. The Read&Write Extension is automatically installed for students when they sign into the Chrome browser using their @student.lowndes.k12.ga.us Google G Suite account. The student can also install the Texthelp PDF Reader from the Chrome web store for our district.
