Founded in 1991, CELT is a highly respected, nationally and internationally recognized Information Technology (IT) Architect and Learning/Business Systems Integrator for P-20 education. For more than two decades, CELT, comprised of approximately 30 employees and more than 50 consultants, has provided professional services and solutions to help learning organizations address their core mission—improving student achievement. Throughout its existence, CELT’s primary role has been to assist educators, government leaders, and community organizations in linking 21st century education reform with information-age technology tools that support teaching, learning, and management. As an information technology architect, CELT researches, plans, and helps implement technology solutions from an instructional, technical, and management perspective.
CELT’s IT planning model has been nationally validated by the U.S. Department of Education. This planning and assessment model entails a set of integrated data collection and needs analysis techniques that enable CELT to present information and findings systematically and validate them through interactive processes with key stakeholders at all levels of the organization. CELT’s architecture services and implementation/ procurement strategies build on this planning model with industry best practices and proven methodologies.
