Wynnewood, PA (June 19, 2006) - Schlessinger Media, the largest producer of K-8 curricular programming, and Harcourt School Publishers, one of the nation’s largest educational publishers, have entered into an agreement to correlate the video publisher’s programs to Harcourt’s new K-6 program, California Science. All video programs will be available on both DVD and VHS, and also digitally on SAFARI Montage, a new video-on-demand server for schools.

“We are honored that Harcourt has chosen an extensive collection of our educational science video programs to correlate to the Teacher Editions of their distinguished texts,” said Andrew Schlessinger, President and CEO of Schlessinger Media. “California schools that own SAFARI Montage will be able to integrate the programs into lesson plans seamlessly,” he added.

“The Schlessinger Media Video programs, with their award-winning science content, provide tremendous support for the California Science Standards,” said Peggy Smith-Herbst, Editor-in-Chief for Science. “Schools that use California Science and the Schlessinger videos will have powerful tools for helping all California students achieve science literacy,” she added.
