Department of Education and Skills
School Accommodation Provision
208. To ask the Minister for Education and Skills further to Parliamentary Question No. 358 of 15 January 2019, if the accommodation needs of a school (details supplied) have been agreed; if so, when a design team will be appointed for the project; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [9482/19]
The Deputy will be aware that a building project for the school to which he refers is included in my Department's 6-Year Construction Programme. In the context of progressing the building project, my Department undertook a technical site visit to the school.
Following the visit, my Department wrote to the school authority relating to the school's interim accommodation needs. My Department has recently received a response on this matter, from the school authority and this is under consideration at present. Officials in my Department will continue to liaise directly with the school authority, in question, with a view to progressing their Capital project.
