SAM V2 is used by Disability Service Providers to manage students receiving accommodations from disability services.

In addition to tracking student data, SAM V2 allows users to manage and report on:

  • Disabilities
  • Accommodations
  • Consent Types
  • Referrals
  • Case Notes
  • Tasks
  • Tests
  • Alternate Media Orders
  • Class Schedules
  • Documentation

SAM V2 can also auto-generate accommodation notification letters.

SAM V2 is functionally similar to SAM V1 in terms of data tracking, but differs in terms of architecture, user interface, and reporting. While SAM V1 follows a software as a service model, SAM V2 requires that the software be installed on computers owned and managed by the user. Please review the SAM descriptions and pricing document for a comparision between SAM V1 and SAM V2.


SAM V2 was developed using the leading open source solutions of PHP and MySQL. Features include:

  • Web-based
  • Accessible
  • Custom printable reporting
  • Access control via logins
  • Data encryption
  • Data export

A good working knowledge of SQL is required to create custom reports using the SAM V2 interface. Additionally, SQL can be used to import or manipulate data.


SAM V2 is a relational database application, and as such, an understanding of the following database terms and concepts is essential:


Login and Password

Access to SAM V2 requires a login and password. Users are provided with their own login and password that are maintained by the application administrator within the SAM V2 application.

Multiple logins with the same login are allowed.

Passwords are case sensitive.


Within SAM V2, permissions are setup per individual user per table. For each table, it is possible to control if the user can add, edit, delete, or view records within the table. There is no field level permission in SAM V2.


SAM V1 is comprised of the following tables:

For each table, records can be added, edited, deleted, or viewed, depending on the user’s permission. To view table descriptions, relationships, process flows, and detailed field information, click on a table name listed above.
