About the district

See also: Lake Washington School District, Washington
Lake Washington School District is located in King County, Washington
Lake Washington School District is based out of Redmond and serves King County communities including Kirkland and Sammamish. The population of Redmond was 54,144 according to the 2010 U.S. Census.[1]

Demographics

Redmond outperformed state averages for higher education achievement, median income and poverty. The percentage of city residents over 25 years old with undergraduate degrees (60.2%) surpassed the state average (31.4%). The 2010 U.S. Census calculated Redmond's median income at $92,851 while the state median income was $58,890. Redmond had a poverty rate of 6.5% in the 2010 U.S. Census while the state rate was 12.5%.[1]

Racial Demographics, 2012[1]
Race Redmond (%) Washington (%)
White 65.2 77.3
Black or African American 1.7 3.6
American Indian and Alaska Native 0.4 1.5
Asian 25.4 7.2
Native Hawaiian and Other Pacific Islander 0.2 0.6
Two or More Races 4 4.7
Hispanic or Latino 7.8 11.2

Presidential Voting Pattern[2]
Year Democratic Vote (%) Republican Vote (%)
2012 68.7 28.3
2008 70.0 28.0
2004 65.0 33.7
2000 60.0 34.4

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 100.0%. Each column will add up to 100.0% after removing the "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin percentages.[3]

Method of board member selection

The Lake Washington School Board consists of five members elected by district to four-year terms. There was no primary election on August 6, 2013 and seats in Districts 3 and 4 were up for election on November 5, 2013. Voters will choose members for Districts 1, 2 and 5 on November 3, 2015.

Elections in Washington require candidates to pay filing fees equal to 1% of a position's annual salary. Board members in Redmond can be reimbursed up to $4,800 for district activities but do not receive salaries, which eliminates the filing fee. Candidates were required to file nominating petitions by May 17, 2013 to qualify for the November ballot. Each candidate could also submit a photo and statement of 100 words or less by August 23, 2013 for the county's local voter pamphlet[4]
