The Appleton Area Bond or Question 2, was one of two school bonds on the February 17 ballot for the Appleton Area School District, which lies in Calumet County, Outagamie County and Winnebago County. The school board decided to put the measures to a vote at the December 22, 2008 board meeting, and the special election was held on February 17, 2009, where they were both defeated.[1] The second measure can be read about here: Appleton Area Referendum (2009).

The referendum asked the voters to approve issuing debt in the amount of $5,000,000. The expected average tax impact would be approximately $0.08 (ranging from $0.02 to $0.12) per thousand dollars of assessed home value per year beginning in the 2009-10 school year and continuing for eight years.[2]

The additional money was slated to be used to improve school site security and technology infrastructure.


The measure was defeated, with 5,661 "yes" votes and 6,754 "no" votes. The related referendum also failed.[3]
