Marana USD's ABLE (Academic, Behavioral, and Life-Skills Education) Program is part of the continuum of special education services offered by the Marana Unified School District. Servicing students with intellectual and developmental disabilities, this program offers:
- Extremely low staff to student ratios;
- Specialized curriculum and resources designed to meet each student’s unique academic, behavioral, social-emotional, and life skills needs; and
- A learning environment that is highly individualized and specifically structured to meet each student’s needs (including activity, noise, and visual stimulation levels).
The ABLE Program may be a suitable placement option for intellectually disabled students who struggle with integration into a typical school-based special education program, or for students whose behavioral needs can be more appropriately addressed in a smaller and more controlled environment.
Our primary goal at the ABLE Program is to assist each student in achieving his or her highest potential and level of personal independence.
