A Dixon Unified School District bond proposition, Measure D was on the November 2, 2010 ballot for voters in the Dixon Unified School District in Solano County. It was defeated.

Measure D asked voters to allow the school district to borrow $32 million. The $32 million in borrowed money would have been spent to "acquire, construct, repair, and improve classrooms and support facilities, including career technical and vocational facilities, increase student access to modern technology, provide utility and energy efficiency improvements, and purchase leased facilities."

The tax limit on Dixon Unified's bonds is $60 per $100,000 assessed valuation. Residents are paying $50 per $100,000 of assessed valuation already because of 2002's Measure J, which was used to build Dixon High School. Dixon USD may only issue bonds so that the tax limit of $60 is not exceeded by the repayment terms it enters into.[1]
