Medical Accommodations

If your child is in need of any type of medical accommodation during the school day, we must have an Autorization Form on file. If your child is in need of any of the following services, please go here to download the appropriate form, complete it and file with our school nurse.   

There are four types of request and authorization forms:

  • Medication Administration Form (MAF) should be completed only for requests involving administration of medication for students. For cases of asthma, providers may attach an Asthma Action Plan with the MAF. Use of nebulizers on school trips can be cumbersome, please consider prescribing inhaler and spacer whenever possible.
  • Provision of Medically Prescribed Treatment Form (Non-Medication) should be completed when requesting special procedures such as bladder catheterization, postural drainage, tracheal suctioning, gastrostomy tube feeding, etc. This form may be used for all skilled nursing treatments.
  • Diabetes Medication Administration Form should be completed for students with Diabetes who require any of the following: glucose monitoring, insulin and/or glucagon administration.
  • Request for Section 504 Accommodation(s) Form should be used when requesting special services such as a barrier-free building, elevator use, testing modification, etc. This form should NOT be used for Related Services such as occupational therapy, physical therapy, speech and language therapy, counseling, etc. which is properly addressed and provided by a student’s Individualized Education Program (IEP).
