Dáil Eireann Debate
Minister of State at the Department of Education and Science (Deputy Seán Haughey): My Department has provided funding to the project referred to by the Deputy towards programme costs, through the Fund for the Development of Targeted Educational Responses to Certain Children at Risk since 2000 and through an annual allocation of 968 teaching hours under the Co-Operation with Other Institutions Scheme since 2001.
This project is among a number of projects which are currently being evaluated by the Evaluation, Support and Research Unit in conjunction with the Inspectorate of the Regional Directorate of my Department. Post-evaluation meetings will be arranged shortly to provide feedback to the projects involved.
Following the outcome of the evaluation, a decision will be made as to the future funding arrangements and mainstreaming of appropriate projects or models of intervention. Projects will be informed accordingly in due course.
