Data Source:

New York State (NYS) will use data collected and reported to the United States Education Department (USED) annually in the 618 report on Table 7 of Information Collection 1820-0677 (Report of Dispute Resolution Under Part B of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA)).

Reporting on this Indicator in the APR is no longer required by USED.  States report data on the timeliness of State complaint decisions as part of the data they submit under IDEA section 618.  (see http://www.ideadata.org/PartBDispRes.aspexternal link)
