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.[3]

Method of board member selection

The Northshore School Board consists of five members who are elected by district to four-year terms. There was a primary for the District 1 seat on August 6, 2013 while Districts 4 and 5 did not hold primaries as each seat had fewer than three candidates. Seats in District 2 and 3 will be up for election in the November 3, 2015 general election.

Elections in Washington require candidates to pay filing fees equal to 1% of a position's annual salary. Board members in Northshore School District 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 14, 2013 in Snohomish County and August 23, 2013 in King County for the local voters' pamphlet.[4][5]
