Developing, Aligning, and Improving Systems of Academic and Behavioral Supports: Scaling Up Multi-Tiered System of Supports Statewide Application

Developing, Aligning, and Improving Systems of Academic and Behavioral Supports: Scaling Up Multi-Tiered System of Supports Statewide Application

The SWIFT (Schoolwide Integrated Framework for Transformation) Education Center is partnering with the Orange County (CA) Department of Education and the Butte County (CA) Department of Education to build a training infrastructure for the Scale Up MTSS Statewide (SUMS) initiative for the State of California. SUMS combines several initiatives into a comprehensive Multi-Tiered System of Support (MTSS) framework to improve students’ academic, behavioral and social-emotional outcomes across the state’s vast and complex PreK-12 educational system MTSS is a continuum of research-based, system-wide practices paired with data-based decision making to meet the academic and behavior needs of students, including those with the most extensive support needs. SWIFT staff will also contribute technical assistance and support for data-based decisions, a key component of SWIFT’s approach, using a SWIFT Fidelity of Implementation Tool and other center products and resources.
