Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day

BCPS Observes Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day – Friday, February 1, 2019

Broward County Public School (BCPS) will observe Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day on Friday, February 1, 2019. This year’s theme is Workforce Development for All – dedicated to helping youth understand the force of their service: on their families, on their communities and on the world.

The National Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day is April 25, 2019, but due to date conflicts with the Florida Standards Assessment (FSA) testing periods, the District will celebrate the event before the testing window on February 1. Neighboring school districts (Miami-Dade and Palm Beach) will also observe the event on February 1.  

Students who wish to participate by joining their parent or another adult at work should submit the form to their school before Friday, February 1. Students participating in Take Your Daughters and Sons to Work Day will have an excused absence.
