A Nogales School District Bond Measure was on the November 8, 2011 ballot in the Nogales school district area which is in Santa Cruz County.

This measure sought to issue a bond in the amount of $7.8 million in order to make facility upgrades. This would have added on to the current maintenance override tax the school has, adding $1.30 per $1,000 of assessed property value to the current tax rate in the district. School officials noted decreased funds as the main cause for asking for this additional money. Those opposed to the measure noted that it was not a good time to further ask residents for more money.[1]

This was the second attempt by the school district to get a bond approved, though critics noted that less than half of those eligible to vote will likely turn up to vote in November. Proposed projects included a new addition to the gymnasium as well as a new science building at Nogales High School. Safety upgrades, roof replacements, electrical upgrades and upgrades to athletic fields were also proposed projects.[2]
