National Center on Schoolwide Inclusive School Reform: The SWIFT Center
The SWIFT Center (Schoolwide Integrated Framework for Transformation) is an initiative to bring about educational equity district by district until all students excel, including students with the most profound needs. As the national technical assistance center to build schoolwide inclusive practices to improve academic and behavioral outcomes for ALL children, the SWIFT Center is currently partnering with five states, 16 school districts, and 64 schools to implement the SWIFT Framework for educational improvement over the next four years. The SWIFT Center selected Fox Prairie Elementary School in Stoughton, Wisconsin as one of six Knowledge Development Sites where aspects of the SWIFT domains (Administrative Leadership, Multi-Tiered System of Support, Integrated Education Framework, Family and Community Engagement, and Inclusive Policy Structure and Practice) can be seen in practice. Fox Prairie and the Stoughton Area School District's history of aligning the district mission with an equity framework of support for all students embodies the SWIFT Inclusive Policy Structure and Practice domain. In this Issue Brief we highlight some of the policies and practices that contribute to the remarkable achievements in this Knowledge Development Site.
