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 Roanoke County School Board is comprised of five members selected by district. The elections for these seats are staggered, and the members serve four-year terms.[4] Three seats were up for election on November 5, 2013, and two seats will be up in November 2015.
