Welcome to the Board of Education

The Vacaville Unified School District Governing Board consists of seven members. School Board elections are held on even-numbered years, with members elected to serve staggered four-year terms.


Basic functions of the Board are to establish the policies by which the schools of the District are to be administered and to select the Superintendent and staff who will implement those policies. The Board shall be responsible for the organization and operation of the District in conformity with the rules and regulations of the State Board of Education, and the laws of the State and Federal Government.


Regularly Scheduled Board Meetings:


Board meetings will be held at the VUSD Educational Services Center located at 401 Nut Tree Drive and are generally held the first and third Thursday of each month. During the months of January, February, July, and December there is only one meeting due to school breaks/holidays. Also, during the month of June the meetings will be held on the second and fourth Thursdays. Special meetings are called as needed. Please call the superintendent's Office at 453-6101 to verify meeting dates, times and locations.
