PARAMUS, NEW JERSEY — Nov. 10, 2020 — Savvas Learning Company is proud to announce that the Virginia Board of Education has approved its middle and high school science programs for statewide adoption, paving the way for school districts throughout the state to implement next-generation learning solutions that provide personalized opportunities for open-ended exploration and real-world learning.
In order to be approved by the Board, Savvas Learning Company’s science submissions first underwent a rigorous evaluation by a Virginia Department of Education (VDOE) textbook review committee.
