A Buchanan School District Bond Measure will be on the February 28, 2012 ballot in the Buchanan school district area which is in Berrien County.

This measure seeks to issue a bond in the amount of $19.5 million in order to pay for addition, remodeling, equipping, updating technology and security as well as renovating playgrounds and athletic fields in the district.[1] If approved, on average, homeowners would pay an additional $5.71 per $100,000 of assessed property value in taxes to pay for the bond. School officials had obtained community feedback before proposing this bond, hoping that with resident's input the bond would have a better chance to meet proposed needs and be approved.[2]

The Buchanan City Commission gave its support behind this measure noting that the schools are in need of renovations and repairs which can only help students.[3]
