A Toltec School District Bond Repurposing Measure was on the November 8, 2011 ballot in the Toltec school district area which is in Pinal County.

This measure was defeated

  • YES 378 (32.87%)
  • NO 772 (67.13%)Defeatedd[1]

This measure sought to allow the school district to use bond money approved in 2008 for other uses than described in the 2008 measure. This will not add to the current bond amount, it will just allow the school to use the money for other projects not specified. Recently, the state of Arizona passed a law that allows schools to repurpose bond money for other uses as long as voter approval was given. If this had been approved, the bond money would have instead been used to maintain current facilities and construct additions to current facilities. Money would have been used less for transportation needs and new facilities.[2]

Text of measure

The question on the ballot:

Shall the Governing Board of Toltec Elementary School District No. 22 of Pinal County, Arizona, change the list of capital projects and amounts authorized by the qualified electors within the District at the November 4, 2008 bond election by (1) reducing the amount of bonds to be issued for pupil transportation vehicles from “$900,000” to “$250,000,” (2) changing a category from “new facility construction” to “school building construction, additions, renovations and site improvements” and (3) increasing the amount of bonds to be issued for school building construction, additions, renovations and site improvements from “$3,100,000” to “$3,750,000?”[3]
