Smart Start

Valuable insight to get up and running quickly

Start helping students learn right from day one! Every solution subscription and renewal includes Smart Start, which details how busy educators can quickly personalize and implement all of their n2y solutions.

Jump‑start implementation for greater impact

Completely free and led by Professional Learning Specialists who are experienced teachers, Smart Start gives educators time to ask specific questions about each n2y solution they subscribe to in live, 90-minute work sessions. Attendees will gain a better understanding of how our solutions work together to improve student outcomes.

Smart Start work sessions will be offered every Tuesday at 7 pm Eastern and every Thursday at 5 pm Eastern, starting in June. To ensure that educators have flexible options, there will be no prerequisites required to register for the work sessions.

Educators also get informative, self-paced video walkthroughs focusing on key implementation milestones for each solution with Smart Start. Teachers and service providers can access these videos through their Professional Learning solution, and administrators will have access through their Administrator Dashboard.
