Written answers (Question to Education)

My Department's multi-annual Summer Works Scheme 2020 onwards is designed to allow schools, on a devolved funding basis, to carry out necessary improvement and refurbishment works that will upgrade existing school facilities.

I wish to advise the Deputy that commensurate with the level of funding available for the SWS in 2020, applications will be assessed in accordance with the prioritisation criteria outlined in the governing Circular Letter for the Scheme. This Circular Letter (0027/2019) is available on my Department's website www.education.ie.

It is my intention to publish a list of successful applications in Q4 2019 for works to be carried out in summer 2020.
