Trustees mull bond package after Geronimo Rodriguez tabbed to succeed Paul Saldaña in District 6
News Story  June 15, 2017, by Richard Whittaker
"...Rodriguez's supporters spent the weekend sending letters and signing petitions, and ultimately, the board sided with Rodriguez in a unanimous vote of support. (Though the vote may not have represented the full opinions of trustees: District 7 Trustee Yasmin Wagner made sure to praise each candidate, and District 3's Ann Teich encouraged both Delgado and Shield to run again when the seat comes up for election next November.)..."

AISD: Serious Apologies in Order

News Story  November 10, 2016, by Richard Whittaker

Chronicle Endorsements: Austin Independent School District Board of Trustees
At stake: Place 2, At-Large 8
News Story  October 20, 2016
"...Attorney David Quintanilla understands children's issues, but has little hands-on experience with the district. Former Austin Council of PTAs vice president Cindy Ander­son got crosswise with teachers over her opposition to three-year contracts, but with a longer track record of volunteerism on a series of district bodies, we believe Anderson has the edge when it comes to tackling pressing matters. District 3: Ann Teich, unopposed. District 5: Amber Elenz, unopposed. District 7: Yasmin Wagner, unopposed...."

AISD Election = Turning Point?
With filing for the November election imminent, Austin ISD's board of trustees has vacancies, and it has candidates. Unfortunately, they're not in the same seats.
News Story  July 10, 2014, by Richard Whittaker
"...A retired UT researcher specializing in massive parallel computing, and a board member of the Texas Association of School Boards, he called this election cycle "a time of unprecedented opportunity for AISD." Laying out the challenges facing trustees, he wrote, "In the coming months the board will approve a FY 2014-15 budget, hire a new superintendent, and work through school finance challenges from statewide recapture." How­ever, he is not alone in wanting to make those decisions; he has already drawn two challengers. Yasmin Wagner is a creative director at computing firm AMD, a board member of YWCA of Greater Austin, and has served as a representative on the Austin Council of Parent Teacher Assoc­ia­tions and a member of the district's Bound­ary Advisory Committee..."

AISD Trustees: Slow Down on School Closures
Concerns raised over facilities plan timeline, community engagement
DAILY News  February 12, 2019, by Austin Sanders
"...And not everyone on the board disagrees with the expedited timeline. District 7 Trustee Yasmin Wagner said if the FABPAC had the “bandwidth” to take on the facilities planning work, the board should proceed, even if under an “aggressive timeline.” Wagner pointed to the district’s aging buildings (on average, 46 years old) as a motivation..."

Reform PAC Cash Floods AISD Races
Bloomberg, Silicon Valley money boosts reform candidates
DAILY News  November 3, 2014, by Richard Whittaker
"...There were also perfunctory $2,500 payments to District 1 candidate Ted Gordon, and Julie Cowan in District 2, but the PAC has really doubled down on its spending for Yasmin Wagner, challenging District 7 incumbent Robert Schneider. On top of a $7,500 donation to her account, they have laid down over $33,000 in spending, most recently filing a special telegram announcing $13,112 to Kelly Graphics for a Wagner mailer...."

Austin At Large: Fractured Fairy Tales
Will no Prince Charming come to save our school district in distress?
News Column  January 10, 2019, by Mike Clark-Madison
"...That someone could be on the school board, which reflects and responds to certain sources of pressure – the teachers' union, the PTA moms, the usual – but frankly does not channel the breadth and depth of the energies of thousands of vocal activists and engaged citizens, from throughout Austin's socioeconomic spectrum, who have really put their back into fighting for the kids. Why aren't those people better organized to actually guide and power the district forward, instead of haranguing it from outside the walls? Why aren't they running for school board? (Both Rodriguez and Yasmin Wagner ran unopposed in November, not the first time that's happened.) Do we need to pay the school board members? How 'bout we get on that? Choosing Our Own Adventure..."
