I can confirm to the Deputy that my Department is in receipt of an application under Category 9 of the Summer Works Schemes (SWS) 2020 onwards, from the school in question, for window replacement.

Commensurate with the level of funding available for the Summer Works Scheme (SWS) 2020 onwards, all applications will be assessed on a top down basis 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 for information.
