Members of the Central Executive Committee convened this afternoon as engagement with the Department of Education resumed.
INTO participated in a broad discussion on special education provision yesterday with the Department of Education. We are committed to working with the partners in education to advance the reasonable concerns of our members, and to work towards a safe and orderly reopening of our schools.
We will provide a statement when definitive decisions have been taken. In doing so we are acutely aware of the anxiety amongst both teachers and parents owing to the ongoing speculation.
Members are advised that branch meetings are ongoing this month and providing valuable feedback from members to their CEC representatives.
