The Dads Take Your Child to School (DTYCTS) campaign promotes father involvement by encouraging fathers, stepfathers, foster fathers, grandfathers, uncles, brothers, godfathers, and other significant male caregivers to take their children to school or Head Start at the start of the school year and remain involved throughout the year.  From its inception at one school in Brooklyn to over 450 schools and Head Start programs across New York State in 2013, numerous community and statewide partners, and thousands of dads participated in this event. Throughout educational institutions from Niagara Falls to New York City, father involvement is growing around New York.

DTYCTS takes place statewide on the third Tuesday in September: Tuesday September 16th, 2014. Site registration is officially open (please visit: http://www.dadstakeyourchildtoschoolday.com/registration) to get started.
