AGEING temporary classrooms at schools across the area are to be replaced in a Â£13m investment.
The work, at primary and secondary schools from Dewsbury to Birkenshaw, will create more places for youngsters.
Ravensthorpe Junior and Infants, Gomeralâ€™s St Maryâ€™s Primary and Dewsburyâ€™s Westborough High School are among those to benefit.
The plan was backed by Kirklees Councilâ€™s Labour cabinet at a meeting in Huddersfield on Tuesday.
Kirklees has been given a Â£9.2m government grant towards the work, leaving the authority to find Â£4.8m.
Cabinet members agreed to use Â£1.9m of unallocated funds from their 2012/13 budget towards that total.
The other schools to benefit are:
â€¢ Birkenshaw CE Primary
â€¢ Headlands Junior and Inf. (Dewsbury)
â€¢ Boothroyd Junior and Inf. (Dewsbury)
â€¢ Hightown Junior and Inf. (Liversedge)
â€¢ Brownhill St Saviours (Birstall)
A cabinet report highlights ageing temporary classrooms which are in â€œpoor condition and in urgent need of replacementâ€.
Extra places are also wanted to help schools cope with an expected rise in the number of children over the coming years.
Coun Cath Harris, joint cabinet member for childrenâ€™s services, said: â€œThere is an educational benefit, so children can go to school and make sure we have a suitable condition of our buildings.â€
