The Readiness Requirements
Each of the applications within the SWIS Suite carries its own set of readiness requirements. We recommend schools request one application at a time, allowing staff to build fluency in data entry and use of reports for decision making in one, before starting another.​ These requirements ensure you can use the application efficiently from day one. Your facilitator will identify the requirements your school already meets and work with you to complete the missing components for effectively using SWIS, CICO-SWIS, or ISIS-SWIS to manage your school’s behavior data.

The 10 SWIS readiness requirements are:

School-wide discipline is one of the top goals for the school.
Administrative support for the implementation and use of SWIS is available.
A behavior support team exists and they review referral data at least once a month.
The school uses an office discipline referral form that is compatible with SWIS referral entry.
The school has a coherent office discipline referral procedure that includes:
Definitions for behaviors resulting in office-managed vs. staff managed referrals.
A predictable system for managing disruptive behavior.
Data entry time is allocated and scheduled to ensure that office referral data will be current to within a week at all times.
Three people within the school are identified to receive one, 2 ½ – 3-hour training on the use of SWIS.
The school has computer access to the internet and one of the following web browsers: Internet Explorer 8.0 or higher, Firefox 3.0 or higher, Safari 3.0 or higher, or Google Chrome.
The school agrees to on-going training for the team receiving SWIS data on uses of SWIS information for discipline decision making.
The school district agrees to provide a facilitator who will work with school personnel on data collection and decision-making procedures.
