Clarification and correction

Clarification

A Tuesday story about homeless teens said students must show proof of residence and custody before they can attend school. Missouri law, however, says homeless minors who are 16 or 17 are qualified for admission to high school or post-secondary school. Lynn Barnett, assistant superintendent for Columbia Public Schools, said local high schools accept homeless students but investigate their backgrounds for documentation of past schools and to try to find their guardians.

Correction

In the Tidbits column in Taste, page 2C, on Wednesday, an item about a Camp Dutch Oven Outdoor Cooking book included incorrect information about the Lewis and Clark Corps of Discovery. The 1804 expedition did not come to Columbia.
