Department of Education and Skills
Question 181: To ask the Minister for Education and Skills the position regarding the provision of additional accommodation for a school (details supplied) in County Laois; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [20977/11]
I can confirm to the Deputy that the school to which he refers has made an application for capital funding to construct a mainstream classroom and a Resource Room. Officials from my Department have been in direct contact with the school with regard to this application. The school have now forwarded further information to my Department. The application is now currently under consideration and a decision will issue shortly to the Board of Management of the school.
