Discovery Education and Scholastic Media have announced the continuation of their relationship providing digital content to more than half of schools nationwide through Discovery Education streaming. This agreement means Discovery Education is the only streaming media service to offer The Magic School Bus series to the K-12 market. The series consistently ranks among the highest viewed assets on Discovery Education streaming.

In addition to The Magic School Bus, under the new agreement, Discovery Education streaming's users continue to have access to more than 50 Scholastic titles from series including Dear America, Horrible Histories, and I Spy.


Discovery Education also is continuing its relationship with Scholastic subsidiary Weston Woods. Currently, 150 Weston Woods children's literature titles are available as part of Discovery Education streaming's content library, including Chrysanthemum, How do Dinosaurs Say Goodnight?, and Rikki Tikki Tavi. Coming this fall, Discovery Education will add an additional 20 Weston Woods video titles to its collection. Discovery Education also features 135 audio books from Weston Woods in a variety of world languages, including Japanese, French, Mandarin Chinese, and Spanish.


Scholastic Media is the latest media partner to renew its distribution agreement with Discovery Education. In July, PBS Distribution LLC, a joint venture between the Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) and its Boston-based affiliate WGBH, renewed its agreement. At the same time, Discovery Education struck new content partnerships with the Chicago Sun-Times and Educational Publishers LLP, a joint venture between Pearson Education and BBC Worldwide.
