  • CEL has a unique understanding of what really matters to public schools.

    Many thanks to each of you and to CEL, as a whole, for the positive and profound impact you had on this school district. It’s a very visual impact in many ways — logo, pathways posters, letterhead, etc. — but also a more subtle one because of all the messaging, TV coverage and other positive publicity. CEL gave us such a boost! And I (we) will always be grateful for that.

    -Ruth Dunn, Communications Director – District One91 (Burnsville, Eagan, Savage)

  • I highly recommend CEL!

    “Calm, experienced advice was what I knew I could count on during one of our school district’s crises. Deep knowledge and quick response was what was delivered during our website development and implementation. CEL has been a partner extraordinaire. I highly recommend them.”

    – Dr. Julia Espe, Former Superintendent – Princeton Public Schools
