Dáil Eireann Debate
597. Mr. Durkan asked the Minister for Education and Science if extra special needs teaching staff will be posted to a school (details supplied) in County Kildare to assist with current student requirements; and if she will make a statement on the matter. [9138/05]
Minister for Education and Science (Ms Hanafin): The school referred to by the Deputy has the services of two full-time learning support teachers, two full-time resource teachers and one shared resource teacher.
The position with regard to the family referred to by the Deputy is that 3.5 hours resource teaching were sanctioned for one of the children on 4 February 2005. With regard to the application for resource teaching hours for the second child, additional information was received in my Department in January 2005. As the National Council for Special Education, NCSE, has now taken over responsibility for processing such applications, the case was referred to the NCSE recently for review by the special educational needs organiser, SENO. The school will be notified of the outcome of this application as soon as possible.
