Center on Enhancing Early Learning Outcomes

The Center on Enhancing Early Learning Outcomes (CEELO) will strengthen the capacity of State Education Agencies (SEAs) to lead sustained improvements in early learning opportunities and outcomes. CEELO will work in partnership with SEAs, state and local early childhood leaders, and other federal and national technical assistance (TA) providers to promote innovation and accountability.

Based on the priorities established by the U.S. Department of Education, CEELO staff, partners, and experts will work with SEAs and other decision-makers to achieve the following goals:

  1. Improve states’ knowledge about and use of early childhood comprehensive assessment systems
  2. Enhance the use of assessment data and other information to improve program quality
  3. Increase the knowledge and skills of the early learning workforce
  4. Strengthen the alignment of birth through 3rd grade educational policies and systems
  5. Increase the coordination of resources and policies across statewide systems
