Asked Questions

What does SWIFT stand for?

SWIFT is the acronym for Schoolwide Integrated Framework for Transformation.

How can my school or district become a SWIFT partner?

We would be delighted to explore a partnership with your state, district, or school. Learn more about the products and services we offer here. Send us a message at swift@ku.edu and let us know what you are thinking.  We configure our work to meet your needs and resource availability.  Let’s begin that conversation today!

Can SWIFT provide a speaker for my group?

SWIFT staff occasionally accept national conference invitations to share about the progress our partners are making. If you would like to inquire or extend an invitation, send a note to swift@ku.edu.

Can SWIFT advise us about our current plan to install or improve our MTSS or make our school more equitable?

Yes, if you would like to discuss how to get started with us, contact us at swift@ku.edu.  Meanwhile, check out the free, downloadable resource you can use to self-assess your school’s inclusive educational practices and plans called SWIFT Fidelity Integrity Assessment.

What can educators do to begin installing equity-based MTSS where they work?
