Public School Information
California public schools use Common Core curriculum. For California Common Core state standards information, please go HERE.
There are three public school districts that serve the majority of Travis AFB TK-12 students. Public schools in our area offer Kindergarten through 12th grade instruction. Transitional Kindergarten (TK) is also being offered at all local school districts, but not in all elementary schools. Scroll down for the latest information on TK.
Travis Unified School District (TUSD). There are two elementary schools on base: Scandia elementary and Travis elementary. Which elementary school your child will attend depends on where you reside on-base. Golden West Middle School and Vanden High School are right outside the base and can be accessed through the Forbes pedestrian gate without driving off base. The district also has two elementary schools in Vacaville (Foxboro and Cambridge) and one elementary school (Center elementary) adjacent to Travis AFB.
Vacaville Unified School District (VUSD). Generally, if your home is on the northside of Alamo Drive, your children will attend VUSD schools. Scroll down for the link to the districts boundaries map. Vacaville USD has three high schools, one K-8 school, two middle schools and ten elementary schools.
The Vacaville USD has partnered with Kairos Public School Vacaville Academy, a TK-8 independent public charter school. Open enrollment usually occurs after the winter break. Click HERE for more information.
Fairfield/Suisun Unified School District (FSUSD). FSUSD has three high schools, five middle schools and several elementary schools. Please note, two small Fairfield neighborhoods right outside the base off Peabody Road are served by the Travis USD.
Other School Districts in the Area: You may choose to live outside our three main school districts. Here are links to the other school districts in Solano County and the surrounding area. FYI: Napa, Winters, and Davis school districts are NOT in Solano County.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION: For active duty families assigned to Travis AFB who choose to live off-base OUTSIDE the Travis School District boundaries: Your children can attend school in the Travis Unified School District if there is space available. Most school districts in Solano County and surrounding areas have agreed to release military connected children residing in their boundaries to attend TUSD schools, but interdistrict transfer paperwork must be completed first. Please call or email me or the school district office for interdistrict transfer information.
Active duty families assigned to Travis AFB who reside off-base INSIDE the Travis School District boundaries must apply to have their elementary school-aged children attend on-base schools. Automatic acceptance is NOT guaranteed, and your child may be put on an attendance waiting list. If not accepted or placed on the wait list, your child will attend your off-base "home" school; either Cambridge, Foxboro, or Center elementary schools, depending on where you live within the district.
