About Bellevue SchoolPool

How SchoolPool Works

The Bellevue SchoolPool program is split into two sections – one for elementary schools, and one for middle and middle/high choice schools.

The SchoolPool team assists Partner schools with running two month-long challenges during the school year – one in the fall and one in the spring.

The SchoolPool team also assists all schools, including non-partner and private schools, interested in helping parents find carpools, walk pools ("walking school buses"), bike pools ("bike trains"), and bus buddies for school buses or public transit.

How to Become a SchoolPool Partner School

The program is open to all elementary, middle and middle/high choice schools in the Bellevue School District. For a school to become a SchoolPool Partner school, the principal must submit a SchoolPool Partner sign-up application to

Applications are accepted annually.
