Round-up: Six for-profit colleges to close in Washington, class-size supporters hand in signatures

Six for-profit colleges face closure after investigation: California-based Corinthian Colleges, which operates six schools in Washington state under the name Everest Colleges, is under investigation by federal and state agencies and is expected to sell or close its campuses under an agreement with the U.S. Department of Education. The government probe stems from allegations the company has falsified job-placement rates for its graduates and altered students’ grades and attendance records.

Supporters of class-size initiative hand in 325,000 signatures (AP): Advocates of an initiative that would lower class sizes across all grade levels turned in more than 325,000 signatures Wednesday — about 80,000 more than what is required to qualify the measure for the November ballot. The initiative does not specify how the state would pay for the extra teachers and classroom space.

Seattle school board takes first step toward downtown school: The Seattle school board voted Wednesday to authorize the superintendent to enter negotiations on a downtown building that formerly housed a branch of the Federal Reserve Bank. The building and land would be free, but the district estimates it would cost upwards of $50 million to transform the structure into an elementary school for 700 students.
