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.[5]

Method of board member selection

The Jenks school board consists of five members elected to five-year terms by geographic electoral districts. There was no primary election, and the general election would have been held on February 11, 2014. The election was cancelled, however, due to lack of opposition.[1] The Area 4 seat was on the ballot in 2014, and the Area 5 seat will be on the ballot in 2015.[6]
