Roundup: Franklin HS cuts gender out of graduation; vaccine data missing from 300 schools

Franklin High moves toward gender-neutral graduation ceremony: Starting this spring, male and female students at Franklin High School in Seattle will no longer sit on opposite sides of the room during graduation ceremonies, after a group of students and teachers raised concerns that the tradition could make transgender students feel uncomfortable. Several other high schools in the region conduct similar gender-based ceremonies.

Vaccine-exemption data missing from hundreds of Washington schools: Data from the state department of health show around 300 schools in Washington have not reported their vaccination exemption figures, but several of these schools said they have actually submitted the data to state officials. Vaccine exemptions have become a public concern amid an ongoing measles outbreak that’s infected 141 people in 17 states and Washington, D.C.

3 Washington universities are top Peace Corps schools: For the second time in three years, the University of Washington, Western Washington University and Gonzaga have topped the lists for number of graduates who go on to serve in the Peace Corps among large, midsized and small schools, respectively.
