A Clinton School District Bond Measure was on the March 20, 2012 ballot in the Clinton school district area which is in DeWitt, Logan and Macon Counties.


  • YES 437 (45.5%)
  • NO 523 (54.5%)Defeatedd[1]

This measure sought to issue a bond in the amount of $16.7 million in order to pay for a new school facility in the district as well as make repairs to the current high school building and demolish the Webster and Washington elementary school buildings. School officials cited deteriorating conditions at the two elementary schools as reasons to demolish and build new ones. If approved, the bond would not add to the property tax rate as there would be enough funds to repay the bond.[2]
