SWIFT Field Guide consists of five domains, each with two features. Explore the guide to learn more about SWIFT practices.

Multi-Tiered System of Support

A multi-tiered system of support is a continuum of research-based, system-wide practices of data-based decision making used to meet the academic and behavior needs of all students.

Administrative Leadership

Equity-based MTSS thrives with strong and actively engaged administrative leaders who are committed to improving teaching and learning within a system that empowers educators and school personnel.

Integrated Educational Framework

Equity emerges when an educational system includes all students, personnel, and stakeholders within a positive culture and ensures full access for all students to participate in all school-related activities.

Family & Community Engagement

When families, community members, and schools form partnerships in which each benefits from and supports the others, the local culture supports and sustains equity within the school’s MTSS.

Inclusive Policy Structure & Practice

A supportive, reciprocal partnership between the school and its district or local educational agency is a vital lifeline for long-lasting equity and MTSS.
