CANTON, Ga. -- Canton's Liberty Elementary School has won the Georgia Association for Elementary School Principals' 2012 School Bell Award.
Dr. Nicole Holmes, principal of Liberty Elementary, accepted the award at the association's annual conference in St. Simons on Nov. 3.
Every year, 10 Georgia schools win the School Bell Award for their curriculum and organizational leadership programs. Liberty Elementary was honored for its Implementation of Response to Intervention (RTI) School-wide Program.
"Liberty Elementary has adopted a different philosophy for the implementation for RTI, which includes an active role for staff, students, parents and community," Holmes said in a statement. "It is a priority for this staff to provide parents with the support needed at home. This method has been well received by the teachers and parents."
