National Center on Schoolwide Inclusive School Reform: The SWIFT Center
In this Issue Brief we discuss the impact that the Schoolwide Integrated Framework for Transformation (SWIFT) has on improving the outcomes of several current federal, state, district, and school education reform initiatives. Federal initiatives include Race to the Top, School Improvement Grants, and Campaign for Grade-Level Reading; Common Core State Standards is a state-led initiative; and district or school-level initiatives include Universal Design for Learning, Multi-Tiered System of Support with embedded Response to Intervention and Schoolwide Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports. We examine how the SWIFT approach can bring about more effective implementation and stronger buy-in and collaboration among key stakeholders for these initiatives, as well as improve sustainability for long-term impact on student achievement.
