Cool Culture

Family Pass Registration

Sign up for our Cultural Access Program through your child’s school or child care center to see all that a Cool Culture partnership offers to families.

School Eligibility and Family Registration

Signing up for Family Pass registration is through your child’s school or child care center, not directly through Cool Culture. 

We partner with early childhood centers and grades Pre-K and Kindergarten in public elementary schools.

Timeline

School/Center Enrollment: Your school or child care center enrolls with Cool Culture by September 30, 2023 (centers) or December 8, 2023 (schools).

Family Registration: Families at enrolled schools and centers will be able to register for the Family Pass from October 16, 2023 to March 1, 2024.

Family Pass: Family Passes are distributed to your school or center from early December through late March, depending on when you filled out the registration form. The pass is valid at nearly 90 cultural partners through October 31, 2024.

 

Please note: For the 2023-2024 program year, we are implementing a new system to make it easier for educators to register families. This has created unexpected shifts in our timeline. Please refer to this timeline often as deadlines may change, and thank you for your patience as we build a better system.
