    About Us

    Ernest Kimme Charter Academy for Independent Learning (KCAIL) is a VUSD K-12 charter school that includes on-site classes, on-site intervention and support, online classes, independent study and Solano College coursework opportunities.  We do not have attendance boundaries so are open to any student in the VUSD and surrounding districts.  We do have the option to accept or reject applicants based on SARB or expulsion status.  We use multiple data sources to determine if KCAIL is the best learning environment for each student who applies. Interested students should come to our campus for information and enrollment paperwork.  Parents are encouraged to be involved in academics and school activities, however, parent participation is strictly voluntary and not required, per Education Code section 47605 subdivision (n). Parents are required to monitor independent learning as students are required to meet the state minimum for instructional minutes by grade level per Education Code.  KCAIL has earned WASC Candidacy Status and is in the process of accreditation, and has been granted UC eligibility status, but are not currently fully accredited or a-g eligible.  

    Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 (“Title IX”), 20 U.S.C. §1681et seq., is a Federal civil rights law that prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in education programs and activities. All public and private elementary and secondary schools, school districts, colleges, and universities receiving any Federal funds must comply with Title IX. Under Title IX, discrimination on the basis of sex can include sexual harassment or sexual violence, such as rape, sexual assault, sexual battery, and sexual coercion.
