Racial Demographics, 2012[1]
Race Brazos County (%) Texas (%)
White 80.6 80.3
Black or African American 11.3 12.4
American Indian and Alaska Native 0.7 1.0
Asian 5.5 4.3
Native Hawaiian and Other Pacific Islander 0.1 0.1
Two or More Races 1.8 1.8
Hispanic or Latino 24.5 38.4

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.[3]

Method of board member selection

The College Station Independent School District board consists of seven members elected to three-year terms.[4] The CSISD does not hold a primary election and the general election was held on November 5, 2013.
