A Alamosa School District Bond question was on the November 6, 2012 election ballot in Alamosa and Conejos Counties, which are in Colorado, where it was approved.

This question authorized Alamosa School District to issue up to $4.99 million in general obligation bonds with a repayment cost of $7.9 million to fund capital improvements. These debts will be paid by the extension of a property tax authorized at the 1995 election sufficient only to pay the principle, premium and interest of the debt.[1]
