Three seats on the Flagler County School Board were up for general election on August 26, 2014. The general election determines if candidates for each seat can garner a majority of the vote total. If no candidate received 50 percent plus one of the general election votes in a particular district, the top two vote recipients advance to the runoff election on November 4, 2014.

District 1 incumbent Andy Dance defeated newcomer Maria Barbosa. The District 2 election featured incumbent John Fischer and challengers Toni Baker, Lynnette Callender and Janet McDonald. Since neither Fischer nor McDonald was able to garner 50 percent plus one of the vote, they will face each other in the runoff election in November. Trevor Tucker won re-election to the District 4 seat against challenger Michael McElroy.

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, although rounding by the Census Bureau may make the total one or two tenths off from being exactly 100 percent.[4]

Method of board member selection

The Flagler County School Board consists of five members elected to four-year terms. Each member represents a specific geographic district also represented by a county commissioner. There was a general election on August 26, 2014 and the runoff election takes place on November 4, 2014 if no candidate receives 50 percent or more of the general election vote.
