At its core, Scholastic has always been a company dedicated to helping children read. Beginning in the early 1960s, when Scholastic began to produce supplementary books and teaching texts, to the current explosion of technology and digital learning, the Company has stood out as a true partner to teachers and administrators. Today, Scholastic is harnessing the power of adaptive technology with programs that are grounded in research to help engage students, make teachers more effective and raise achievement, and through Scholastic Achievement Partners™, serves as a solutions partner with school districts across the country.
"Technology plays a central role in reaching todayʼs kids in today's classrooms and helping teachers overcome the challenges inherent in managing 21st Century classrooms," said Margery Mayer, President, Scholastic Education.

In some of the largest and most complex districts in the country, we are a true partner in raising achievement."
