My school used Savaas this year. It was very rigorous. I think that it will be even more impactful with more students in person next year.

We use Savaas. I have never been a "teach from the book" teacher because I'm always disappointed in our curriculum, but this one is pretty good. I like the color-coded, step-by-step guide provided for each lesson as a reference for kiddos who need that support, and the reteaches are good for small group support. It's not perfect, but I have had to do far less supplementing with this than others I've experienced. The online content is decent, and I like that the online tests can be customized. I usually customize as needed and print off paper copies for them to take the test, then have them transfer their answers into the computer. (Helps with general grading/item analysis.) You can analyze data by standard or questions, which we usually do together as a class to identify the types of questions the group struggles with most for a whole group reteach/error analysis. I haven't dealt with the middle school curriculum, but this is my experience with their elementary (5th grade) curriculum.

I would suggest checking out Edreports.org for thorough evaluations of the curriculum your district is considering. I am not familiar with the other two programs but Envisions is horrible (used it for 5 years) and has poor ratings on Edreports.

We use Saavas for 6th grade. I am not a huge fan. The notes are almost completely filled out for the kids so there is very little times they are doing anything, besides sitting and waiting to get to a "Try It". So, you have to get creative to keep them engaged if you are using the workbook, because as my students pointed out "Why do I need to try, they put all the answers in there for me?" I do like that you can customize tests and they have a ton of quality intervention worksheets on their website for almost any topic you can think of. I will say my district mostly uses our own notes and then uses the online component for testing and practice.

We use Pearson at my school & it is awesome!
