Dáil Eireann Debate
511. Mr. Ring asked the Minister for Education and Science the schools in County Mayo that benefited as a result of the additional 500 special needs assistant positions announced on 22 October 2004. [29338/04]
512. Mr. Ring asked the Minister for Education and Science the way in which the additional 500 special needs assistants will be divided out, with details of the number which will be assigned to each county. [29339/04]
I recently sanctioned an additional 295 special needs assistant, SNA, posts to support over 500 pupils with special care needs. As these SNAs are not assigned to individual schools but to the children with significant need, it would be inappropriate to provide information on the names of these children. Responsibility for recruiting the SNAs rests with the individual board of management.
