FAIRFIELD — People interested in filling the Travis school board seat left vacant by the resignation of Trustee Dawn Kirby can obtain applications at the district office or download them from the school district website.

Candidates must be at least 18, a registered California voter and live on Travis Air Force Base.

The district office is located at 2751 De Ronde Drive in Fairfield. The district website is travisusd.org.

All applications must be received in the superintendent’s office by 4:30 p.m. July 15. Interviews will occur during a special board meeting in mid-July. The meeting will be open to the public and the successful candidate will be appointed, take the oath of office and then participate as a board member.

Questions about qualifications or applications should be directed to the Superintendent Kate Wren Gavlak, who can be reached at 437-8210 or kwrengavlak@travisusd.k12.ca.us.

The application for candidates includes the question, “Why do you want to be a school board member?” Other questions include whether candidates have children who attend school in the Travis district.

Kirby stepped down last month because of a military move that sent her husband John Kirby to Shaw Air Force Base in South Carolina.

Reach Ryan McCarthy at 427-6935 or rmccarthy@dailyrepublic.net.
