DEIS Inspectorate Seminar: Action Plan for Improvement
Delivering Equality of Opportunity in Schools (DEIS) is the main policy initiative of the Government to address educational disadvantage at school level. The Inspectorate is committed to providing bespoke support to schools which were given DEIS status for the first time or were moved from Band 2 category to Band 1 under the current DEIS plan (launched in 2017). Therefore a series of seminars is being organised for these schools.
The seminar will provide an overview of key aspects of DEIS action planning for improvement, the Department’s requirements in relation to DEIS planning as well as information about the range of supports available for schools which are new to DEIS. Participants at the seminar will have an opportunity to discuss, share experiences of DEIS planning and ask questions about the DEIS evaluation model.
The regional managers of TUSLA’s Home School Community Liaison (HSCL) service will also attend.
PLEASE NOTE: THIS SEMINAR IS ONLY FOR SCHOOLS WHICH ACQUIRED DEIS STATUS IN 2017 OR WERE MOVED FROM BAND 2 TO BAND 1 CATEGORY.
