What was at stake?
Three seats, including those of the board president, vice president and treasurer were at stake. Doug Lundberg, who served as the vice president of the board, was ineligible to run for another term because of Amendment 17 to the Colorado Constitution, which states that no "elected official of any...school district....shall serve more than two consecutive terms in office." Incumbents Linda Van Matre and Catherine Bullock ran for re-election against challengers Shannon Mendes, Larry Norman Borland and Andrea Van Nort.

Note: The United States Census Bureau considers "Hispanic or Latino" to be a place of origin, not a race. Therefore, the Census allows citizens to report both their race and that they are from a "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin simultaneously. As a result, the percentages in each column of the racial demographics table will exceed 100 percent. Each column will add up to 100 percent after removing the "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin percentages.
