Section 504 Accommodations

Introduction to Student Accommodation System (504)

The Student Accommodation System (SAS) is a digital platform where school 504 coordinators can initiate 504 requests, track processes and procedures, and draft and finalize plans. The system integrates with other DOE systems, provides a smoother user experience, and increases transparency for families.  

Additionally, SAS automatically scales its content and elements to match the screen size on which it is viewed, whether it’s on a desktop screen or a phone.  

SAS monitors and maintains key data and information for

School-based 504 Coordinators

School-based 504 coordinators enter 504 requests, generate draft plans (general and diabetes) for parents to review, upload documents, and maintain plan information.


SAS sends notifications to parents to keep them informed on the progress of their child’s 504 request. Parents do not currently access SAS directly but receive key information from the platform via email notifications.

Office of School Health

Health Directors and OSH Clinical Team can review a student’s uploaded 504 request documents and will be able to provide authorization from within the system during a future enhancement.

504 Program Office

SAS includes critical reporting features that record required data about each student’s Section 504 request, such as compliance dates, eligibility determination, and authorized accommodations.
