Office of State Review

Revised Regulations of the Commissioner (8 NYCRR Part 279)
(effective 1/1/2017)

Amendments to rules of practice governing appeals from an Impartial Hearing Officer's decision to a State Review Officer were adopted by the New York State Board of Regents in September 2016.  The amendments were proposed in January 2016 to consolidate the applicable provisions of Parts 275 (Parties and Pleadings) and 276 (Rules of Practice) of the Commissioner's Regulations into Part 279 (Practice on Review of Hearings for Students with Disabilites).

The revised regulations are applicable to all appeals in which the Request for Review (formerly called the "Petition for Review") has been served upon the opposing party on or after January 1, 2017.
