The Michigan School Aid Fund Amendment may be on the November 6, 2012 statewide ballot in Michigan as an legislatively-referred constitutional amendment. The measure would restrict the use of the state School Aid Fund to public K-12 schools only.[1]

The proposal, supported by a group of Democractic lawmakers, was developed to prevent proposals like Gov. Rick Snyder's proposal to use School Aid Funds for community college and public university 2012 budgets.[1]

The School Aid Fund was established in 1963 following a constitutional amendment. According to reports, the funds are to be used for "school districts, higher education and school employees' retirement systems."[1]
