Beyond the Bell

Tacoma Public Schools and community partners have come together to offer Beyond the Bell. Beyond the Bell lets you choose from more activities at your school than ever before. Choose from options for before and after school, in-service days, and school breaks.

Everything is all in one place. Go to your school’s website or the TPS Family App and look for Beyond the Bell.

You will find descriptions and schedules for all activities offered at your school. Check for free opportunities and discounts. 

Beyond the Bell is in elementary schools and Club Beyond is in middle schools across Tacoma Public Schools, powered by community partners.

“Pay What You Choose”

Thanks to funding from Tacoma Creates, the federal relief funds, and people just like you, Beyond the Bell after school programming will be “Pay What You Choose” through 2021

What is “Pay What You Choose”? It makes Beyond the Bell affordable and accessible for families by offering flexible pricing options that are right for everyone.

Beyond the Bell will offer this special launch pricing through the end of December 2021. When you sign up on the Family App at, you will be asked what you would like to pay for Sessions 1 & 2 of Beyond the Bell at your school. You may choose between $0 - $150, and every dollar you do pay to Beyond the Bell will go back into this program. Our Beyond the Bell providers are committing to high quality and engaging experiences, and we look forward to seeing your student Beyond the Bell.
