A Gravenstein Union School District bond proposition, Measure M ballot question was on the November 6, 2012, ballot for voters in the Gravenstein Union School District in Sonoma County, where it was approved.[1]

Measure M authorized the district to borrow $6 million.

School superintendent Linda LaMarre said that the main uses to which the funds will be put will be to build a science lab and performing arts facility at Hillcrest Middle School, and modernize Gravenstein Elementary School.[1]

A 55 percent supermajority vote was required for approval.

Voters in the district had previously rejected Measure I, a June 2008 parcel tax measure, and Measure A, a March 2009 parcel tax measure.
