Goalbook Raises $915K in Funding
Goalbook, a Palo Alto, CA-based provider of a platform for schools to manage and collaborate around student Individual Learning Plans (ILPs), has raised $915k in funding.
The round was led by NewSchools Venture Fund, which injected $200k, with participation from Greg Gunn, Steve Shulman, and Joe Gleberman.
The company intends to use the capital to develop a “Goal Bank”, an online set of individualized goals, fully aligned to the Common Core State Standards, which will include assessments, instructional resources, and videos to aid special education teachers.
Founded by Daniel Jhin Yoo, Goalbook has created a social and mobile platform for teachers and administrators to design and implement individual learning plans for students. Schools and districts can use it to create a profile for students with special needs, and empower all team members to access and share student data in real-time. In addition, Goalbook features a “Service Delivery” module which tracks service minutes, and a “Timelines” module which tracks compliance deadlines. The company will be launching its Goal Bank in November with several district partners.
