A partnership between the Neighborhood Outreach Connection (NOC) and the Beaufort County School District is providing educational opportunities this summer for elementary and middle school students in Beaufort. The Virtual Summer Learning Program (VSLP) provides on-line computer based tutoring for NOC’s students. During the summer, Beaufort Elementary School teachers work at NOC Program Centers, which are located in the underserved neighborhoods of Parkview Apartments and Marsh Pointe. At NOC’s Program Centers, students have Internet access to Compass-based learning, the same program used by students in the classroom during the school year.
The program runs through the end of July. When the school fall semester commences, the NOC Program Centers will provide after-school programs at Parkview and Marsh Pointe.
