North East Carolina Preparatory School distributes mobile hotspots to keep classrooms connected for remote learning
Distance learning is more than a logistical challenge. William J. (Joe) Etheridge, executive director of North East Carolina Preparatory School (NECP), has been in education for more than 40 years, and for the last five years has been fully dedicated to improving NECP’s academic achievement record. Mr. Etheridge stated, “We’re very proud of the fact that for the last three years 100% of our graduating seniors were accepted into a two- or four-year institution.” The need to adopt a remote learning solution fundamentally changed his game plan, but he was unwilling to sacrifice his students’ potential or success.
