Method of election
Springfield Public Schools
Greene County, Missouri ballot measures

About the district
- See also: Springfield Public Schools, Missouri
Greene County outperformed the rest of Missouri in terms of higher education achievement in 2013. The United States Census Bureau found that 28.3 percent of Greene County residents aged 25 years and older had attained a bachelor's degree compared to 26.2 percent for Missouri as a whole. The median household income in Greene County was $40,337 compared to $47,380 for the state of Missouri. The poverty rate in Greene County was 18.7 percent compared to 15.5 percent for the entire state.
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, although rounding by the Census Bureau may make the total one or two tenths off from being exactly 100 percent. This Ballotpedia page provides a more detailed explanation of how the Census Bureau handles race and ethnicity in its surveys.
Method of board member selection
The Springfield school board consists of seven members elected at-large to three-year terms. The election, scheduled to be held on April 8, 2014, was canceled because only two candidates got enough signatures to be on the ballot. Three seats will be up for election in April 2015.
Candidates began to file affidavits of candidacy on December 17, 2013. The filing deadline for school board candidates to get on the ballot in the general election was January 21, 2014 and the deadline for candidate certification was January 28, 2014.
