Dáil Éireann Debate
61. Deputy Thomas P. Broughan asked the Minister for Education and Skills if he will report on new proposals to expand a school (details supplied) in Dublin 5; when a permanent principal will be appointed; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [27980/11]
Minister for Education and Skills (Deputy Ruairí Quinn): As the Deputy will be aware, the National Council for Special Education (NCSE) is responsible, through its network of local Special Educational Needs Organisers (SENOs), for the establishment of special classes and for allocating resource teachers and special needs assistants to schools to support children with special needs.
The NCSE has sanctioned a new class for children with autism in the school in question. Furthermore I have been advised that the BOM of the school has successfully selected a person for the post of Principal and arrangements are under way to complete the appointment process.
