The project to which the Deputy refers has been devolved to Donegal Education and Training Board (DETB) for delivery.

Following the appointment of a new architect to complete the delivery of this project, the Department has recently granted permission to DETB and its design team to proceed to finalise its planning application. It is the intention of DETB to lodge that planning application shortly.  Subject to any issues arising during the planning process, the project can then be expected to proceed to tender.

The Deputy will also be aware that surveys to investigate issues with the school's main existing building have been carried out. An initial report was provided to my Department on foot of which further surveys were undertaken. A final report is being prepared and this will inform a decision on the best approach to addressing the issues raised in these reports.
