Qualified and skilled staff. JRC’s well qualified staff and consultants include doctoral and masters-level clinicians, licensed special education teachers, speech therapists, physical therapists, occupational therapists, physical education teachers, registered nurses, psychiatrists, and physicians.
Central digital video recording/monitoring system 24/7, using the internet, adds a further layer of safety, supervision, and parent peace of mind. From a central monitoring station at JRC’s administration building at 250 Turnpike Street in Canton, a team of supervisors monitor what takes place in all classrooms and in all residences, in real time and on a 24/7 basis, using the internet.
This system uses state-of-the-art digital video recording systems that are located at JRC school buildings, in all of JRC’s residences, and in select vehicles. The system operates over a secure network environment. The supervision monitors use this system to make sure that student programs are implemented properly at all times.
Skilled, experienced, high level supervisors are available at all times, including evenings and overnights. Traveling School Supervisors visit JRC residences during evenings and overnights, and high level supervisors are on call 24/7 to answer questions and make decisions.
Elopement policy. JRC’s highly rewarding environment and planned, as well as earned, home visits minimize elopements. When appropriate, students can go home for four extended weekend/holiday visits each year.
JRC retrieves students immediately if they do elope, and calls for police help in an elopement only if JRC staff is unable to retrieve the student quickly. JRC does not terminate students who engage in repeated elopements.
