Aurora Reorganized School District Bond Issue question was defeated on the April 2, 2013 election ballot in Barry and Lawrence Counties, which are in Missouri.

If approved, this measure would have authorized the Aurora Reorganized School District to increase its debt by $5.3 million through issuing general obligation bonds in that amount in order to fund construction of a new performing arts center and athletic facilities for the district High School as well as other repair and improvement projects. This measure would have left the debt service levy rate unchanged at 10.5 mills ($10.5 per $1,000 of assessed valuation).[1]
