Vandenberg AFB 2018 Education

For those moving to a new location, it’s important to know what educational options are available. This chapter outlines the public schools system in Santa Barbara County, along with information about local libraries and higher education. There are private schools, charter schools and home schooling available to children in the county as well.

To be enrolled in a California school, a child must be 5 years of age on or before Sept. 1 of the school year. Check with the school for additional registration requirements. Students must submit an up-to-date immunization record.

In 2010, California, along with the majority of other states, the District of Columbia, Guam, American Samoa, the Northern Mariana Islands, the U.S. Virgin Islands and the Department of Defense Education Activity, adopted Common Core State Standards that provide a consistent set of educational expectations for students, regardless of ZIP code. When a family moves, a student’s education is often disrupted because the student may be forced to repeat material or learn at a different level at the new school. With common standards across states, this disruption will be reduced — of particular interest to military families. At present, national Common Core State Standards exist only for English language arts and mathematics, with science and social studies in development, though California has state standards across the full curriculum.
