EDUCATE Together has announced its intention to open new schools in 20 areas in 2008, including two in north county Dublin.
Swords and Skerries were placed on the group’s list when it recently submitted formal notification of its intention to apply to open the schools next September.
A spokesman for Educate Together said the ‘intent to apply notification’ does not constitute any guarantee that Educate Together will either make a formal application to open a school or proceed to open a school in these areas in September 2008.
“These notifications are necessary as a patron can only make a formal application to open a school if notification forms have been submitted,” the spokesman stated.
The deadline for formal applications is January 31, 2008.
