About the district

Fox C-6 School District, Missouri
Fox C-6 School District is located in Jefferson County in Arnold, Missouri. It is located in the sixth largest county in Missouri. According to the 2010 United States Census, Arnold is home to 20,808 residents.[1]

Demographics

Arnold outperformed the state average in median household income and residents living below the poverty level. The United States Census Bureau found that 17.5 percent of Arnold residents aged 25 years and older had attained a bachelor's degree compared to 25.8 percent for Missouri as a whole. The median household income in Arnold was $55,449 compared to $51,529 for the state of Missouri. The poverty rate in Arnold was 6.5 percent compared to 8.6 percent for the entire state.[1]

Racial Demographics, 2010[1]
Race Arnold (%) Missouri (%)
White 96.3 82.8
Black or African American 0.6 11.6
American Indian and Alaska Native 0.2 0.5
Asian 0.9 1.6
Native Hawaiian and Other Pacific Islander Z 0.1
Two or More Races 1.4 2.1
Hispanic or Latino 2.2 3.5

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.[2]

Method of board member selection

The Fox C-6 School District Board of Education consists of seven members elected at-large to three-year terms. There was no primary election, and the general election was held on April 8, 2014.[3] Three at-large seats were on the ballot in 2014, two seats will be on the ballot in 2015 and the remaining seats will appear on the ballot in 2016.[4]

The filing deadline for school board candidates to get on the ballot in the general election was January 28, 2014.[5]
