Special education program details Special Education services at Sonoran Schools are based on student needs, not categories of eligibility. This allows educators to share the responsibility of educating students with disabilities to achieve academic skills, while at the same time facilitating social and emotional development. Our students belong to a school community where being accepted for who they are is the norm.
