Educational Services

Each school curriculum is centered on the child, with lessons and standards presented in ways that help student thrive and succeed. 

To achieve this, several service areas align under Celerity Global Development’s department of academic support to provide comprehensive educational support services.

Grant Writing and Implementation

Celerity Global Development provides full-service grants support, including grant research, writing, submission, implementation, tracking, evaluation and report filing of both competitive and entitlement grants. Funded grants include Title i, Title II-A, Title II-D, Title III, Title IV, Title V, E-rate, Public Schools Charter Schools Grant, ASES, SES and other federal and state grants, as applicable.

Curriculum

Celerity Global Development works with each school to determine and develop a specific curriculum  program that meets state and federal standards. Celerity support staff assists by providing guidance on specific curricula and school improvement plans, as well as meeting academic measures and other requirements of No Child Left Behind. Curriculum development and implementation at the school is supported by the Celerity Global Development instructional team.

Special Education

Celerity Global Development embraces the philosophy of full inclusion, believing special education students are often best educated in the regular classroom. Special education teachers and para-educators work collaboratively with teachers to provide personalized instructional programs for every child. All team members accept responsibility for students and modify, accommodate and adjust teaching techniques and class activities to meet the learning abilities of all children.

Celerity Global Development’s special education department supports and monitors programs at all of the school sites. On-site, certified special education teachers provide and monitor services with oversight from the special education department. The team meets monthly for professional development and legal and compliance updates. In an effort to ensure on-site team members are able to maximize their time working with students, our corporate department:

  • Completes state monitoring activities for all of the school sites
  • Ensures compliance with state and federal guidelines
  • Completes all annual state and federal reporting
  • Provides data oversight to ensure proper documentation
  • Responds to requests for records

Student Assessment and Evaluation

Educational growth is a multi-faceted and evaluation should reflect physical, social and intellectual progress. Various assessment tools, including state-mandated tests, are used to determine each child’s development and to measure the success of the school program in meeting its goals. The assessment and evaluation department partners with school staff in areas of high-stakes testing, quantitative and qualitative measures/reporting and School Improvement Plan development. Using data collected through these assessments, data-driven decision making is utilized on an individual, classroom and school-wide basis.
