Can't Keep UpDate

So much has been happening that I can't keep up.  For those of you not following Facebook or who may have missed it there, here's the most important update of late, posted to fb last Friday:

This is my baby with the superintendent, Dr. Carstarphen, after the board meeting on November 19.

We have made a difference! I received an email from Dr. Carstarphen, and based on Mr. Waxler's recommendation following comments from the SHAC members, the existing regulation has been rescinded, effective immediately!

I am thrilled at this news! I look forward to working with the district in the creation
of a new policy that will follow Texas law & serve as a model for other school districts in Texas & throughout the country. I love this town of ours, & I will be even prouder to live here when AISD has a new mother- & baby-friendly regulation in place.

We couldn't have gotten this far without hundreds & hundreds of thoughtful and respectful people - thank you all so much for everything you've done - whether it was clicking "Like" on this page, sharing the petition, writing the district or calling a legislator - it all matters. It all added up to make a big difference, so from the bottom of our hearts, thank you! Please stay tuned in as we continue this process. When there's a new policy that upholds the law & respects breastfeeding mothers, that's when it'll officially be a victory.

And then - the rest of Texas. :)
