SchoolPool Guide

The SchoolPool Guide outlines the steps necessary to set up a Neighborhood SchoolPool Network. The Guide is meant to be applicable to any Bay Area school; however, for Marin schools, the process is facilitated by TAM through the Safe Routes to Schools program, along with the support of its schools and volunteers.
