A school district bond issue is a bond issue used by a public school district, typically to finance a building project or other capital project.

40 states require voter approval of bond issues as a matter of course, and in seven more, voters can petition to have bond issues placed on the ballot. Of the remaining three states, one of them, Indiana, uses what is known as the remonstrance-petition process.
