Department of Education and Skills
School Accommodation Provision
271. To ask the Minister for Education and Skills when the expected new ASD unit for a school (details supplied) will commence construction on site in Sligo; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [33691/17]
The school to which the Deputy refers was approved funding to provide a two classroom ASD unit under my Department’s Additional School Accommodation Scheme.
The school authority have submitted an alternative proposal to my Department which includes additional accommodation to that approved, together with improvement works to the school, with significant cost implications. The proposal is currently under consideration and my Department will be in direct contact with the school on the matter.
