Dads Take Your Child to School is an initiative taking place across New York State that encourages fathers and father-figures to take their children to school and make a commitment to be involved in their childrens education. Taking place in September of each year, it is a one-day event that can catalyze father involvement for the rest of the school year. Schools and community organizations use this opportunity to get to know the fathers of their students, and to encourage them to be involved by signing up for PTAs, Policy Councils, and volunteer opportunities like hall monitoring, career day, or beautification projects. As well, schools could distribute information and resources to encourage parent involvement in education, such as reading guides. To learn more, click here:
