A Lake Tahoe Unified School District bond proposition, Measure A ballot question was on the June 3, 2008 ballot for voters in the Lake Tahoe Unified School District in El Dorado County, California, where it was defeated.

If Measure A had been approved, it would have authorized the school district to borrow $87 million. To repay this, the district would have levied a tax of 3.87 cents per $100 of assessed value of a person's property, or $38.70 per $100,000.[1]

After Measure A's defeat, the Lake Tahoe school board voted to put Measure G on the November 4, 2008 ballot. Measure G asked for $64.5 million. It was approved with 59.42% of the vote.

A 55 percent supermajority vote was required for approval.
