For over 90 years, Scholastic has shared a common goal with educators like you across the country—to ensure that every child, regardless of ability or economic status, has access to quality education. Our goal is to partner with you in your mission to support the continuous and sustainable improvement of student achievement and, in the process, help all children learn to read and read to learn!
The Scholastic Classroom & Community Group reinforces learning inside and outside of the classroom, providing young people with texts that are relevant and engaging, educators with professional development and resources to do their jobs better, and communities with literacy mentoring programs and partnerships to spread a love of books and learning.
Classroom Solutions:
The Scholastic Classroom & Community Group offers a wide variety of paperbacks and other instructional materials at a variety of reading levels to enhance classroom instruction and help every student learn to read, achieve, and succeed!
Teacher Effectiveness:
Research has shown that providing professional development for teachers is critical to improving classroom instruction and student achievement. Scholastic offers an array of Professional Development services and resource materials that meet the specific needs of your teachers and help you turn good teaching into great teaching!
Scholastic FACE (Family and Community Engagement):
Our comprehensive, research-based solutions to improving children’s literacy achievement in school and beyond are built on the proven results of action research and focus on the belief that student success in the classroom and in later in life is set against the backdrop of a child’s home and community. Scholastic FACE supports the alliance between districts, schools, families and communities in an effort to improve educational outcomes.
