Department of Education and Skills
Question 238: To ask the Minister for Education and Skills if a school (details supplied) in County Louth which is a DEIS Band 2 school will retain its legacy post which predates DEIS; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [9466/12]
The report on the Impact in Terms of Posts of Budget Measures in relation to The Withdrawal from DEIS Band 1 and Band 2 Urban Primary Schools of Posts from Disadvantaged Schemes pre-dating DEIS has been completed and submitted for my consideration. The report details the facts for each individual school affected by this measure, and applies the most up to date enrolments for September 2011. In addition, the report takes account of the net effect of a range of factors on teacher allocations in these schools, for example increasing and decreasing enrolments and the reforms to the existing teacher allocations process, all of which will determine the staffing requirement for these schools for 2012/13 school year. I will make an announcement shortly regarding the final outcome for the schools concerned, including the school referred to by the Deputy.
