Rock Wood School District Construction Bond question was defeated on the April 2, 2013 election ballot in Jefferson and St. Louis Counties, which are in Missouri.

If approved, this measure, Proposition S, would have authorized the Rockwood School District to increase its debt by $38.4 million through issuing general obligation bonds in that amount in order to fund the acquisition, construction, renovation, repair, improvement, furnishing and equipment of school buildings and facilities. The debt service levy of the district is estimated to remain at 6.8 mills ($6.8 per $1,000 of assessed valuation) to pay for these bonds.

This measure requires a 4/7th's majority approval rate (57.1%) to pass.[1]

Text of the question:

Shall the Rockwood R-6 School District, St. Louis County, Missouri, issue its general obligation bonds in the amount of Thirty-Eight Million Four Hundred Thousand Dollars ($38,400,000) for the purpose of acquiring, constructing, renovating, repairing, improving, furnishing and equipping school sites, buildings and related facilities in the District, including but not limited to (1) safety and health measures, (2) technology infrastructure and classroom technology and (3) maintenance of current facilities by continuing to fund major capital repairs and improvements, resulting in no estimated increase in the debt service property tax levy?
