Dr. Narendra P. Sharma, Founder and Chair, NOC, made a presentation to the Board of Education and senior staff of the Beaufort County School District on August 7, 2014, to discuss accomplishments of the NOC/BCSD partnership over the past five years.
The presentation also focused on challenges we face in Beaufort County to reduce the significant gap between minority and non-minority students and between students from high-income and low-income families. Dr. Sharma noted that by maintaining a strong presence and connections with parents in the neighborhoods served, bringing teachers and technology into its program centers in these neighborhoods, and focusing only on education, NOC is strategically placed to supplement learning in the schools.
