School Specialty

School Specialty provides more than 110,000 educational products from leading brands important to the education community, including Crayola, 3M, Elmer’s and its own brands, namely  Childcraft, Sax, EPS, Califone, and Frey among others.

School Specialty provides innovative products and programs to the education community in the U.S., serving the needs of teachers and schools to make sure students get the scholastic support they need to advance their learning achievement and reach their full potential.  With products tailored to students from early childhood education through high school and beyond, School Specialty’s mission is to provide customers with the breadth and depth of educational knowledge and resources they need while serving as a one-stop supply solution.

School Specialty employs a team of researchers, content developers, product designers — both current and former educators — to design and develop unique educational products, not just in the area of school supplies, but in the domains of standards-based curriculum, supplemental learning resources, and furniture.

The company has won three separate bids and has been awarded three contracts by the Monterey County Office of Education (MCOE). They are for a catalog of instructional supplies, a sports supply catalog, and range of furniture lines. Bids were solicited cooperatively with the Association of Educational Purchasing Agencies, but were locally advertised and awarded by MCOE.
