SWIFT Schoolwide Integrated Framework for Transformation
SWIFT is a national K-8 technical assistance center that builds school capacity to provide academic and behavioral support to improve outcomes for all students through equity-based inclusion
We Believetogether we can transform education so that it benefits each and every student, their families, and ultimately the communities in which they live.
SWIFT Center helps whole education systems build capacity to provide academic and behavioral instruction and support for all students, including those with the most extensive needs. SWIFT technical assistance uses six research-based practices to differentiate support as each community travels its unique path to being a highly effective education system in which all students achieve and fully participate in their school communities.
