60 Day Complaint

If a parent, individual or organization believes that a school district or public agency
(such as a Board of Cooperative Educational Services (BOCES), charter school or school operated by a State agency) has violated a requirement of Part B of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) or State law/regulation related to students with disabilities, they may submit a written, signed State complaint to the New York State Education Department (NYSED).  Attached is a New York State (NYS) Sample Complaint Form that may be used to submit a complaint. Use of this form is not required.  However, if using your own format to submit a State complaint, you must provide the required information, as appropriate, as indicated on the sample form. Upon receipt of a written complaint by an individual or agency, NYSED must determine if the alleged violation occurred and issue a written decision of its findings.
