A Southern Boone County School District Bond Measure was on the April 5, 2011 ballot in the Southern Boone County school district area which is in Boone County.

This measure was approved

  • YES 1,022 (73.26%)Approveda
  • NO 373 (26.74%)[1]

This measure sought to create a bond in the amount of $4.2 million which will go towards building a new cafeteria and kitchen at the district middle school as well as a fine arts classroom and four addition classrooms at the high school. Increased class sizes were expected so the district thought to ask for the money now to ensure there are adequate facilities for students. No organized opposition had been filed against this measure.[2] School board officials stated their reasons behind placing this measure on the ballot, the building is old, water leaks through the roof and the current middle school is too small to accommodate all the students that attend. They also noted that state funding has been decreasing over the past several years so cuts have been made already to the budget.[3]
