A Lakeville School District Bond Measure will be on the August 7, 2012 ballot in the Lakeville school district, which is in Genesee County.

This measure seeks to issue a bond in the amount of $7.58 million in order to help pay for upgrading technology, refurnishing, reequipping and remodeling buildings as well as purchasing new buses for the district.[1] This will be the third attempt by the school district to get this bond measure passed. The district is trying again because state money is still available to help with the proposed projects, but if the measure is defeated again then the opportunity to take advantage of the state money will pass. This bond is slightly different than what was asked of residents in February, there is no proposal for a new auditorium.[2]
