White Paper on Service, Taoyuan Reform School
Our work is in special education in the principle of love. We take school management measures and reconstruction of ideas and values are the first priority in the hope to have students keep good morality in a pleasant environment and continue study and learn skills to be on the right track. Once they leave the school, they will continue higher education or find jobs.
II. Education measures
1. New students into classes
New students first stay in new student class and receive training for 1-2 month to become familiar with the environment. After that, they are arranged into appropriate classes per education attainment and age.
2. Life assistance and morality education
Tutors or 3 disciplinary personnel stay at classes in shifts to live with students and help/assess their life and conducts. Morality education is given in the morning and evening to make them have good habits and sound characteristics.
3. Knowledge education
Hueiji Elementary School, Wenchang Junior High School and National Tao-yuan Agricultural and Industrial Vocational High School have branches of supplementary schools here. All students have classes every morning. We are in charge of teachers, education and student status management. Teachers at the school help manage and assist students.
4. Vocational education
We have registered skill training classes under CLA, Executive Yuan and talent classes. Students receive skill training or talent education to have accurate career ideas. Students completing skill training may take licensing tests by CLA and get licenses if they pass the tests.
5. Results assessment and encouragement
Under progressive treatment rules in rehabilitative disposition by Ministry of Justice, there are four levels. Students follow rules after assessment are into Levels 4 or 3. Scores on behaviors, study and talent learning are given each month in progress of responsibility score deduction. When students have been here for over 6 months, they enter Levels 2 or 1. One can apply for suspension or removal of reformatory education by judge at adolescent court if students have scores in three months meeting the standard and treatment is no longer required. Progressive treatment is good in stabilizing students’ emotions.
6. Entertainment activities
We often hold activities and competitions on sports, ball games, chess, talents, and gatherings and play movies to help students enjoy life under normal entertainment. Family gatherings are held on Chinese New Year, Mother’s Day, and Moon Festival when students meet parents, who can better understand how students study or behave here. Parent will also have better relation with students.
7. Family contact
To understand students’ family conditions and communicate with parents on discipline, in addition to required phone visits, our teachers talk to parents when they visit. We invite experts and scholars to give speeches at gatherings to help parents understand accurate attitudes and methods to teach children and strengthen family support.
III. Protection on students leaving school
1. Indirect protection
Upon students’ will, we request bureau of education or department of social affairs of city/county government to help students continue study or find jobs after they leave school. We also contact adolescent assistance associations and branches of Taiwan After-care Association to visit or help students so they can return to society and get used to social life.
2. Direct protection
We request Taiwan After-care Association or social welfare institutions to transfer or receive homeless students.
3. Follow-up assistance
