For nearly 25 years, the Take Our Daughters And Sons To Work program has been giving children the opportunity to envision themselves in the workplace, and get a taste of potential available career paths.

Students from kindergarten through 12th grade may participate in Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day. Parents are encouraged to notify their child’s school if their child will be absent from school to participate. Absences will be considered excused.

The District is unable to participate in the national Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day in April, as that date conflicts with the state-mandated Florida Standards Assessment (FSA). Schools are not able to have visitors on campus or have large numbers of students out of school during those state-required tests.
