Department of Education and Skills
School Accommodation Provision
249. To ask the Minister for Education and Skills the progress on the extension of a school (details supplied); if it will be ready for the beginning of the academic school year in September 2020; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [6233/20]
I wish to advise the Deputy that my Department is in receipt of an application, for additional school accommodation, from the school authority in question. The assessment process to determine the school’s permanent accommodation needs is nearing completion. The school will be informed of the decision in due course.
In the meantime, interim temporary accommodation has been approved to cater for the schools need in the short term. The school authority has advised that they have accommodation to cater for the start of the next academic year.
