A remediation programme for 22 schools, 3 in Kildare, with structural problems will begin today.
Education Minister Joe McHugh says it's after two weeks of consultations with principals and management.
The works will be carried out over the summer, allowing them to re-open in September.
The schools, which were built by Western Building Systems, were identified as having structural issues last October.
The Kildare schools are Scoil Phádraig Naofa, Athy, Gaelscoil Átha Í and Athy Model School
