This ALL Means ALL video embodies the philosophy of the SWIFT Center (swiftschools.org): It takes administrative leadership, a multi-tiered system of support, family and community partnerships, an integrated educational framework, and inclusive policies and practices to effectively meet the needs of ALL students, including students with disabilities and those with the most extensive needs.
At SWIFT, we believe that, together, we can transform education so that it benefits each and every student, their families, and ultimately the communities in which they reside. The SWIFT Center community uses their talents, passion, and resources to ensure that every child is a valued member of their school and given the supports they need to achieve academic and social success.
What do we mean by “every child?” Students who are struggling readers, gifted, living in poverty, students with disabilities, high achievers, culturally and ethnically diverse students, and those with the most extensive needs.
The SWIFT Center is committed to eliminating the silos in education by bridging general and specialized education to create powerful learning opportunities for students and teachers and promote active, engaged partnerships among families and community members.
