Issues in the election
A significant issue in the Killeen ISD board election proved to be gun safety, with recent incidences of students bringing guns onto buses. At a forum held in March 2014, Place 4 candidates answered community questions about the issue. Place 5 incumbent Terry Delano ran unopposed and therefore did not attend. Candidates suggested curriculum to teach students about gun safety, monitoring other districts with similar situations occurring, equipping buses with video cameras and having aides on buses, among other recommendations.

|Racial Demographics, 2012|
|Race||Killeen (%)||Texas (%)|
|Black or African American||34.1||12.3|
|American Indian and Alaska Native||0.8||1.0|
|Native Hawaiian and Other Pacific Islander||1.4||0.1|

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.
