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.[4]

Method of board member selection

The Board of Education consists of five members elected by geographic district to five-year terms. There was no primary election and the general election was scheduled for February 11, 2014. There is one seat up for election every February.[5]
