A Allegan School District Bond Measure will be on the May 8, 2012 ballot in the Allegan school district area which is in Kalamazoo County.

This measure seeks to issue a bond in the amount of $18.5 million in order to help pay for facility improvements, upgrades to the athletic complex and new technology in the district. If approved, the bond would not raise current tax rates just extend the current bond repayment levy for the life of the new bond.[1]
