Snapchat expansion: In the March 31 Section A, an article about the expansion of tech company Snapchat in Venice Beach said that Google was moving its operation from Venice to Playa Vista. Some employees will remain in Venice. In addition, the article misspelled Venice resident Jack Hoffmann's name as Hoffman.

Cal State trustees: In the March 25 California section, an article about actions by the California State University trustees said that the board approved a long-range academic plan that would eliminate 17 degree programs, including the bachelor's in chemistry at Cal State L.A. The campus is eliminating its bachelor of arts chemistry program but will retain a bachelor of science in the subject.

Charter schools: In the March 29 California section, an article about a report calling for more oversight of charter schools was accompanied by a photo with a caption that misidentified its location. The photo, of a teacher walking with her students in 2013, was of a field trip to Cal State Northridge, not at Wisdom Academy.
