The purpose of the Summer Works Scheme is to devolve funding to individual school authorities to undertake small-scale building works which, ideally, can be carried out during the summer months or at other times, thus avoiding disruption to the daily operation of the school.  Under the terms of the Scheme, school authorities are empowered to manage these works with guidance from, and minimal interaction, with the Department of Education.

Funding of €41.2m under the summer works scheme should see major improvements undertaken in primary and post primary schools around the country.
