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

This measure issued a bond in the amount of $180 million in order to help pay for new school buses, upgrading technology, replacing heating and cooling systems in the district as well as general upkeep needs. School officials note that the decrease in revenues from property taxes has led to less upkeep of the district school than is needed and this bond would help pay for those immediate needs.[1]

This bond was officially placed on the ballot the end of April, officials made note that this money is essential to maintain school facilities. It is still undetermined how much money will go to each proposed project. The largest amount of money is expected to making sure the school campuses are updated and modernized. Officials expect on average that property tax rates will increase by $76 per year to pay for the bond.[2]
