About Bellevue SchoolPool

Bellevue SchoolPool is a program that encourages families and students to explore sustainable transportation options for their commute to and from school and alleviate congestion at drop-off and pick-up times and locations. 
 
Bellevue SchoolPool focuses on two approximately one-month long SchoolPool challenges during the school year, one in October, the National Bike Month and one from Earth Day, April 22, to Bike Everywhere Day, the third Friday of May. 
 
The Bellevue SchoolPool team works with Bellevue School district schools located in Bellevue to provide marketing and educational materials and to engage students in SchoolPool activities during the SchoolPool challenges. Through participation in SchoolPool, schools can also raise money for their school and earn free incentives for their students. 
 

How SchoolPool Works

For the 2018-2019 school year, Bellevue SchoolPool is split into two programs - one for grades K-5 and a pilot program for teens (6-12).
 
SchoolPool K-5 partner schools' students record their walk, bike, carpool and bus trips to and/or from school in their SchoolPool trip log calendar, which is distributed through their schools.

SchoolPool Teen partner schools' students participate in SchoolPool related activities conducted at their schools. Activities may include assemblies, presentations, contests, bike classes, etc.
