The Travis Unified School District Governing Board will hold a special meeting tonight in Fairfield to interview candidates and appoint one of them to fill a vacant seat on the board.
A special election was going to be held for the open position in March. However no candidates filed for the vacancy prior to the filing deadline. California Education Code allows that in the case of insufficient nominees in a school district election, the school board makes appointments. That means the board has through Monday, March 2, to appoint someone to fill its current vacancy.
The person selected will serve Trustee Area 1 (which covers Travis Air Force Base) until the end of the term on Dec. 7, 2018, as if they were elected to the post.
