Round-up: Seattle’s community colleges announce name change, Common Core testing begins

Seattle’s community colleges announce name change: Three Seattle colleges are removing the word “community” from their names and will be known as Seattle Central College, South Seattle College and North Seattle College starting this fall. Officials say the change is intended to reflect the schools’ broader mission, which includes a four-year Bachelor of Applied Science Degree program.

Common Core testing begins in Washington: Starting next week, students in the Puget Sound region will begin participating in a trial run of Common Core testing, intended to let exam makers see how students respond to the questions. More than a third of the state’s elementary- and middle-school students will take the exams by mid June.

UW-Tacoma hits its stride: The University of Washington’s 24-year-old Tacoma campus has much to celebrate in its 24th year, including state funding for a new law school and growing enrollment that reached 4,000 students this academic year.
