Diamond School District Bond Issue was approved on the April 2, 2013 election ballot in Newton County, which is in Missouri.

This measure authorized the Diamond School District to increase its debt by $3 million by issuing general obligation bonds in that amount. This measure would not immediately increase the district's current debt service property tax levy rate of 9.9 mills ($9.9 per $1,000 of assessed valuation) but it would cause an eventual tax increase. This money will be used to enlarge and renovate the elementary kitchen, redo the electrical system in the elementary school in order to make it compatible with current codes, provide air conditioning and renovate bleachers in the middle school gym and install energy efficient lights in the middle school building and facilities. This measure also allows the completion of the elementary school roof replacement project and possibly the renovation of the middle and high school track.

This measure requires a 4/7th's (57.1%) super majority to pass.[1]
