In early February of 2018, the School City of Hammond undertook disciplinary action by involuntarily transferring HAPA Assistant Director/Director of Theater Dan Taube from his established roles at the Hammond Academy for the Performing Arts to a new role outside of the Morton arts community. This action was taken without sufficient explanation to members of the community, without opportunity for public comment or inquiry, and without regard for due process.

Dan Taube, throughout his career as an educational asset to the School City of Hammond, has been instrumental, not only in the artistic and academic development of Hammond's young performers, but perhaps even more notably, in the emotional growth and maturity of so many current students and alumni. Mr. Taube's remarkable academic credentials and experience in the arts distinguish him both inside and outside of the HAPA community, and his efforts as an educator have elevated the Academy to its current status of high regard amongst the admission departments of colleges and universities with reputable theater programs.

We the undersigned now request that the School City of Hammond reconsider the undertaken action, investigate and evaluate all of the relevant facts surrounding the decision independently, consider the impact of this transfer on the long term success of HAPA and it's students, and reinstate Dan Taube as HAPA Assistant Director/Director of Theater.
