Dear HPISD Parents and Staff,


A reconsideration committee upheld the use of the challenged book "The Art of Racing in the Rain" in a report completed Monday evening. Click here to view the committee's report, and click here to view supporting documents and a dissenting opinion.


The book was formally challenged under the process detailed in Policy EFA (LOCAL). Following that process, a reconsideration committee was appointed to review the book.


We thank the members of the committee for their service.
