StartSOLE is organized into geofenced regions called rings. Each ring includes a dashboard to help local leadership manage and grow their community.
It’s not that open systems necessarily make better systems. It’s just that they’re able to respond more quickly because each member has access to knowledge and the ability to make direct use of itThe Starfish and the Spider, Brafman & Beckstrom
We leverage existing networks to disseminate SOLE, with tools to promote existing trainers or identify them organically based on use. Each trainer receives access to our dynamic library of support materials - constantly updated with the work of other trainers in the entire network.
Our team of experts is available for on-site professional development, remote support, and we have monthly community of practice calls customized to support your needs.
StartSOLE's community-contributed database of over 15,000 Big Questions grows larger every day. As part of our partnership with new regions, we can help create crosswalks to map your local standards to our existing content. This ensures that content for your educators grow with us.
Our team includes educators and developers, and we can help with every step of the process!
All StartSOLE lesson plans and reflection documents start with Danielson aligned content built using a templating engine that allows for maximum flexibility.
Want to add connections to workforce development initiatives in your region? No problem.
Looking to connect tenth grade educators with social-emotional standards? We've got you covered.
We give you tools to speak to your community in your own voice. Our welcome sequence of emails can be replaced with branded content to make your educators feel right at home. Transactional emails can also be configured with branding and messaging to provide motivation.
Our platform can also be branded with logos, themes, and more to reflect your community identity and help teachers in your region feel at home.
Our technology is designed for easy localization. We partnered with SOLE Colombia to translate our web app into Spanish and community volunteers have translated content into Hebrew, Japanese, and more!
