A visit by former porn star Sasha Gray to a Compton elementary school prompted officials to offer an explanation Monday regarding how the actress ended up reading to a classroom full of children.

Gray, who recently landed a part in the HBO show "Entourage," visited Emerson Elementary School as part of its guest reader program. The visit was arranged by an outside talent coordinator, the Compton Unified School District said in a statement.

"The outside talent coordinator listed the actress as a mainstream actress from the HBO show 'Entourage,' " said the statement, which refrained from mentioning Gray by her name.  "Although we have worked with this talent coordinator for several years, we will meet to review the participant selection process."

The district also said that, contrary to media reports, the reading program was not part of the Reading Across America program.
