What is DEIS?
Delivering equality of opportunity in schools was a national programme launched by the Department of Education and skills in 2005 aimed at addressing the educational needs of children and young people from disadvantaged communities. The DEIS Plan 2017, which replaced the 2005 Plan, sets out a vision for future intervention in the critical area of social inclusion in education policy, and is the DES policy instrument to address educational disadvantage
