Award given for student excellence

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -  An Albany school was recognized for student excellence. Alice Coachman Elementary was given a $250 check from Educational Learning Systems Inc, or ELS.

 It's a group that helps schools integrate technology into the hands of staff and students through online programs and curriculum. Alice Coachman is the first school of the month to be presented with the award. 

ELS President Ken Hodges feels it was the teamwork of teachers and students that helped improve instruction.

"It's an enlightened district in terms of the use of technology," said President Hodges. "We found during the summer Dougherty County has some of the best teachers we have worked with, we had a great summer program, great increase in achievement. And by the end of the year we expect to see the same kinds of change."

Dougherty County Superintendent Dr. David Mosely was also there to celebrate along with several school leaders. 

ELS will present a different school every month with an award.
