A Flagstaff School District Bond Measure was on the November 6, 2012 ballot in the Flagstaff school district, which is in Coconino County where it was approved.

This measure issued a bond in the amount of $20.7 million in order to help pay for upgrading technology, renovating buildings, purchasing new equipment and furnishings as well as new vehicles for transportation. If approved, it is estimated that an addition of $21 per year per $100,000 of assessed value would be added to the local property tax rate. School officials note that the increased loss of state spending has led to them asking voter for additional money to ensure the school are supported.[1]
