Wednesday, May 07, 2014 – College Spark Washington awarded Tacoma Community College a $150,000 grant. Paid over three years, the funds will allow TCC to partner with Tacoma Public Schools (TPS) to increase the number of students who graduate from high school prepared to enter college-level classes.

The grant will help TCC and TPS reduce learning gaps in the transition from high school to college. The goal is to make sure more students enter college prepared for college-level English and math.
