       On January 28, 2013, School Specialty, Inc., a 
Wisconsin corporation, and certain of its subsidiaries 
(collectively, the "Debtors") filed voluntary petitions (Case No.
13-10125) in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District

provisions of Chapter 11 of the United States Bankruptcy Code
(the "Bankruptcy Code").  On May 23, 2013, (i) the Debtors 
filed the Second Amended Joint Plan of Reorganization under 
Chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code (the "Plan") with the

order confirming the Plan, and a corrected copy of such order 
was entered by the Bankruptcy Court on June 3, 2013 (such 
order, the "Confirmation Order").

Form 8-K filed with the Securities Exchange Commission on 
June 17, 2013, a total of 1,000,004 shares of Common Stock of 
the Issuer were issued as of the Effective Date.

	As disclosed in the Plan (including the plan supplements 
thereto), and pursuant to the Plan and Confirmation Order, Justin
Lu, a principal of Zazove Associates LLC, was appointed to 
serve as a director on the board of directors of the Issuer (the
"Board") on the Effective Date.  The Plan and Confirmation 
Order provide solely for the composition of the initial directors
on the Board as of the Effective Date.  Should Mr. Lu cease to be
a director on the Board, none of the Reporting Persons has any
contractual right to designate his replacement or any future
directors to the Board.

	As of the close of business on June 19, 2018, the 
Reporting Persons beneficially owned 720,139 shares of 
Common Stock.  The Reporting Persons have sole power to vote

720,139 shares of Common Stock constitute approximately 
10.3% of the shares of Common Stock outstanding.

Stock that it beneficially holds.  The responses to Item 2 above

known to have the right to receive, or the power to direct the 
receipt of dividends from, or proceeds from the sale of, the 
shares of Common Stock reported in this Schedule 13D.
