The Travis School District governing board is seeking to fill a long-vacant seat serving Area 1, which encompasses Travis Air Force Base.
No one filed for a potential special election, which would have taken place in March. As a result, and in accordance with state law, current trustees may now appoint someone to the position.
Qualified applicants must be at least 18 years of age, be a Travis Air Force Base resident and be registered to vote in California. The board plans to interview and appoint the most-qualified candidate during a special board meeting Feb. 17.
