BCPS Celebrates

“Dad’s Take Your Child to School Day”

Wednesday, September 22, 2021





Broward County Public Schools (BCPS) is proud to announce celebrating “Dads Take Your Child to School Day” on Wednesday, September 22, 2021. Presented by the Florida Department of Education, the statewide initiative serves to highlight and support fatherhood engagement in education by helping schools foster this important connection with fathers and father figures.


Research shows a child’s father or male role models have a significant effect on enhancing a child’s educational experience. We encourage schools to invite fathers, stepfathers, grandfathers, uncles, brothers, foster fathers and other male role models to bring their children to school on Wednesday, September 22, 2021.


A toolkit that includes “Dads Take Your Child to School Day” promotional materials, messaging for social media and ParentLink, a video public service announcement to promote the event, and suggested activities, can be found at Family and Community Engagement SharePoint.
