Applicants who are denied approval or renewal are eligible to submit an appeal. To appeal the Commissioner’s decision, applicants who are not approved may file an appeal to the Commissioner of Education for reconsideration within 15 business days of notification of denial. The provider must provide specific, objective information that details the basis for their appeal. The Commissioner of Education shall act upon the appeal and notify the applicant in writing whether the appeal was approved or denied within 45 business days. This deadline for acting on the appeal may be extended if additional information is required from the applicant.
