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 Albemarle County School Board consists of seven members who serve four-year terms. Six of those members serve by magisterial districts, and one serves at-large. ACPS did not hold a primary election and the general election was held on November 5, 2013. Though the school board is officially partisan, all members ran as independents in the last election.[4]
