• A headline in the Oct. 15 Local & State section about a consultant’s report on Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools busing and bell schedules incorrectly characterized the consultant’s concerns. The report from the Council of the Great City Schools affirmed many of the decisions CMS made in changing school hours two years ago but said the district had not communicated those changes well.
• A story on Monday’s front page about proposed school changes included incorrect information about the number of proms at Olympic High, which has five small schools on one campus. Kevin Hobbs, the zone superintendent who oversees Olympic, was quoted as saying there were five proms; he said he later learned there was one prom with five kings and queens.
• A Monday front page story on St. Matthew Catholic Church’s decision not to host the interfaith Thanksgiving service should have offered a fuller explanation of why the Diocese of Charlotte recently pulled out of the N.C. Council of Churches. The diocese wanted a structure that would let it continue to be a member of the churches’ council without being unfaithful to Catholic teaching.
