IN THE MATTER OF SHANE M. DRAMAN, PETITIONER,
NEW YORK STATE OFFICE OF CHILDREN AND FAMILY SERVICES, GLADYS CARRION, COMMISSIONER, ERIE COUNTY DEPARTMENT OF SOCIAL SERVICES, CAROL DANKERT, COMMISSIONER AND ROBERT DIESZ, DIRECTOR, RESPONDENTS.
Proceeding pursuant to CPLR article 78 (transferred to the Appellate Division of the Supreme Court in the Fourth Judicial Department by order of the Supreme Court, Erie County [Patrick H.

This opinion is uncorrected and subject to revision before publication in the Official Reports.
PRESENT: MARTOCHE, J.P., SCONIERS, GREEN, AND PINE, JJ.
It is hereby ORDERED that the determination is unanimously confirmed without costs and the petition is dismissed.
Petitioner commenced this CPLR article 78 proceeding seeking to annul the determination of respondent New York State Office of Children and Family Services denying his request to amend an indicated report of maltreatment to provide instead that the report was unfounded (see Social Services Law § 422  [a] [v]; [c] [ii]). Upon our review of the record, we conclude that there is a rational basis for the agency's determination and that it is supported by substantial evidence (see Matter of Theresa G. v Johnson, 26 AD3d 726; Matter of Danielle G. v Schauseil, 292 AD2d 853, 854).
