OAH has a Request to Set form for Teacher Dismissal cases to collect additional information from the parties.  Please use the form to request a hearing in all permanent certificated teacher dismissal cases.  

A separate Request to Set form has been created for Motions for Immediate Reversal of Suspension (MIRS). Please use this form for all such motions.

All other motions shall be accompanied by a Teacher Dismissal Motion Cover Sheet.  Failure to include a properly completed cover sheet may result in rejection of a motion.

All forms should be submitted to the Office of Administrative Hearings using the Secure E-File Transfer (SFT) system.
