BCPS Will Celebrate Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day Early for 2018

The Broward County Public Schools (BCPS) will be observing Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day on Friday, Feb. 2, 2018, instead of the traditional April date, due to date conflicts with the state-mandated Florida Standards Assessment (FSA) testing periods.  BCPS joins other local school districts (Miami-Dade and Palm Beach counties) in observing Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day on Feb. 2, instead of the national observance date in April.

This year’s theme is “Positive Agents of Change,” encouraging students to take advantage of positive opportunities that come their way.

Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day is a nationwide learning program that allows students to explore career industries, form ideas about their futures and learn what it takes to be successful in a business environment.

Local companies and organizations are encouraged to participate, and help students see how what they are learning in their classrooms applies to the workplace. In addition, all BCPS schools, centers and departments and administrative offices will provide employees the opportunity to bring their daughters and sons to work.

BCPS students who participate in Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day must complete the Student Log and Activity Form. Activity packets are available at schools and on the District website, browardschools.com. For additional information, parents and guardians should contact their child’s school directly.
