Edmond outperformed in comparison to the rest of Oklahoma in terms of higher education achievement in 2012, median household income and percentage of residents living above the poverty level. The United States Census Bureau found that 50.7 percent of Edmond residents aged 25 years and older had attained a bachelor's degree compared to 23.2 percent for Oklahoma as a whole. The median household income in Edmond was $71,216 compared to $44,891 for the state of Oklahoma. The poverty rate in Edmond was 10.6 percent compared to 16.6 percent for the entire state.
Note: The United States Census Bureau considers "Hispanic or Latino" to be a place of origin rather than a race. Citizens may report both their race and their place of origin, and as a result, the percentages in each column of the racial demographics table may exceed 100 percent.
Method of board member selection
The Edmond school board consists of five members elected to five-year terms by geographic electoral districts. There was no primary election, and the general election was held on February 11, 2014. If no candidate had received a majority of the vote, a runoff election would have been held on April 1, 2014. The Area 4 seat was on the ballot in 2014 and the Area 5 seat will be on the ballot in 2015.
Candidates began to file affidavits of candidacy on December 2, 2013. The filing deadline for school board candidates to get on the ballot in the general election was December 4, 2013 and the deadline to contest a candidacy was December 6, 2013.
