Amy McCart, Ph.D., is an Associate Research Professor with Life Span Institute and Adjunct Faculty with the Department of Special Education at the University of Kansas.  She is the Co-Director for the Schoolwide Integrated Framework for Transformation (SWIFT) Education Center, established in 2012 as part of the largest grant award received in KU history.  SWIFT is a national technical assistance center providing academic and behavioral support for all students, including those with the most extensive needs. SWIFT Center combines the strengths of general and special educators in a three-tiered model of instruction. SWIFT is designed to meet the needs of all students and facilitates implementation of this approach with evidence-based technical assistance practices. Dr. McCart leads a team of professionals serving urban, rural, and high need schools across the nation including California, New Hampshire, Maryland, Mississippi, Oregon, and Vermont.  Additionally, she is the Principal Investigator for multiple federal projects through the U.S. Department of Education to support urban schools implementing school-wide positive behavior support.  As part of her work with school-wide positive behavior support, she serves as a collaborating partner in the National Technical Assistance Center on Positive Behavior Intervention and Support. Dr. McCart worked in a number of urban schools, including the Recovery School District in New Orleans, Louisiana, the Kansas City, Kansas Public Schools, and the District of Columbia, Washington Public Schools. She was the Site Director at an agency supporting individuals with extensive disabilities working to improve quality of life. Dr. McCart traveled to South Africa as part of a delegation from the United States Office of Special Education Programs to share ideas with the Department of Basic Education for the Republic of South Africa.
