Contact information for key programs and services at this installation.
The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, or IDEA, requires states and territories to provide early intervention and special education services to eligible children and young adults. Early intervention services, or EIS, are available for children from birth to 3 years old, and special education services are available to children from 3 to 21 years old. Installation EFMP Family Support providers can provide specific information and resources for these services.
All states and territories must provide early intervention services to children who have, or are at risk for having, developmental delays, from birth to their third birthday.
Most CONUS locations, local school districts or health departments provide these early intervention services. The program is called different names in different areas, but it is often referred to as Part C because that is the section of the law that pertains to early intervention. The Education Directory for Children with Special Needs has a list of resources specific to each state to help you determine who you should contact. Your installation EFMP Family Support provider can also answer your questions.
If you are moving OCONUS or to a CONUS location with a DODEA school (and you live on installation), your child will receive EIS through the Defense Department’s Educational and Developmental Intervention Services, or EDIS, program.
When moving, you should hand carry copies of your child's most current individual family service plan, or IFSP, and the most current evaluation reports to your new home to ensure they are not lost.
All states and territories provide special education and related services to eligible children between the ages of 3 through 21.
When a child transfers to a different district in the same state, the new school must provide a free, appropriate public education, including comparable services, until the previously held IEP is adopted or a new one is developed and implemented. When a child transfers to another state, the receiving school must provide comparable services until an IEP review can determine if a new evaluation or IEP is appropriate.
If you are moving and your child receives special education and related services, you should hand carry all necessary school and medical documents, including the most current IEP and current evaluation reports. Hand carrying these documents ensures that they are not lost and allows the new school to begin the process as soon as you arrive.
Travis AFB School Liaison Officer:
While we cannot directly neither endorse or discourage you from any particular school, I can tell you that most of our EFMP families use Travis Unified School District. This is mostly due to the fact that >70% of our families live on Base or in the immediate area.
If your child(ren) have an active IEP, time is of the essence to make sure it gets to the new school. They’ll likely want to do their own IEP assessments to provide your child the least restrictive environment and proper resources. If you use the usual sites like Great Schools and social media, you undoubtedly will encounter praises and complaints across the spectrum for any given school district. On that note, our School Liaison Officer is Mr. Christian Mendoza and can be contacted at 707-424-4345 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Please reach out to him with your school/special education questions.
