A Ann Arbor School District Levy Increase measure will be on the May 8, 2012 ballot in the Ann Arbor school district area which is in Washtenaw County.

This measure was changed to a later date and made a bond issue instead of a levy increase.

This measure was originally going to increase the current property tax by a rate of .5 mills for a period of ten years. The additional money will go towards upgrading technology throughout the district. School officials had debated on the date to propose the levy, decided ultimately on February and not November as there would be more time to decide the language with a February election date and the time between the two election dates would not make much difference for the schools getting the money, if the measure is approved. School officials also noted that the need for upgrades in technology is needed, it was only a question of timing the proposal.[1]
