(1) Reconstruction of old school buildings
In order to let students enjoy a safe, high quality learning environment, after inspecting citywide school buildings that are lacking in earthquake resistance or structural safety in 2015, the city government formulated the “NT$ 5 Billion in 8 Years - Old School Building Reconstruction Project” for school buildings that require demolition, reconstruction and reinforcement. The purpose is to set forth a clear schedule and specific, feasible strategies for reconstructing and reinforcing these buildings. The target is to complete the reinforcement, demolition and reconstruction of school buildings that have not been certified for earthquake resistance before the end of 2022.
1. As of September 2016, there are 56 questionable school buildings across 33 schools that were either lacking in earthquake resistance or structural safety, and must be demolished and reconstructed. From 2015 to 2017, 24 old school buildings across 14 schools have been reconstructed at a cost of NT$ 1.425 billion.
2. The remaining 32 buildings in 22 schools were originally slated for reconstruction during 2018-2022, but the project schedule was moved ahead to between 2017 and 2019 at a cost of approximately NT$ 1.59 billion in response to the “2017-2019 Public Elementary School/High School Building Earthquake Resistance and Facility Upgrade Project” proposed by the MOE in September 2016.
(2) School building reinforcement
Senior high school/elementary school buildings constructed before 2000 amount to 1,147, and 590 of them require earthquake resistance reinforcement after an assessment was conducted:
1. From 2009 to 2016, 310 buildings have been reinforced at a cost of NT$ 1.849 billion. As of the end of 2016, 280 buildings remain to be reinforced (junior high school/elementary school: 272, senior high school: 8).
2. For elementary school buildings, NT$ 2.448 billion was approved by MOE to subsidize the project between 2017 and 2019. For senior high schools, NT$ 25 million was received to reinforce 3 buildings. NT$ 52.2 million subsidy for the other 5 buildings is still awaiting MOE’s approval, and reinforcement project is expected to be implemented for 63 buildings in 2017, 100 buildings in 2018 and 117 buildings in 2019. All of the school buildings are expected to be reinforced by 2019.
