What was at stake?

There were four seats on the school board up for election on November 5, 2013. The only incumbent who filed for re-election was District 4 member Art Johnston, who faced challenger David Bolgrien and who defeated Justin Perpich in the primary election. District 1 incumbent Ann Wasson did not file for the election, which left her seat vacant for candidates Joseph Matthes and Rosie Loeffler-Kemp, both of whom defeated Marcia Stromgren in the primary. Neither at-large members Mary Cameron or Tom Kasper ran for re-election, so two newcomers won their seats. Neither Joshua Bixby nor Loren Martell received enough votes to proceed to the general election, where Annie Harala, Henry L. Banks, Harry Welty and Nancy Nilsen competed for the seats.

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]
