Let's discuss innovative ways to get positive male role models into your school.

Fathers and Father Figures are there for your school. You just have to know how to make them feel welcome and excited about being there. All you have to ask is for one day a year.

In this episode, we hear from Leotis McCormick, a tribal police officer with the Nez Perce Tribe in Lapwai, Idaho. Leotis is the Top Dog Coordinator for Lapwai Elementary School.

We also hear from Monica Fine and Chad Marsh of Cleveland PreK-8 School in Dayton, Ohio. Monica talks about taking the "spark" of the idea of father involvement and Chad talks about going from "I'm nobody special" to becoming a "Hero of the Hallways".

Chris Danenhauer of the Watch D.O.G.S. National Office explains the process of the transition of a Watch D.O.G.S. school from the "Pre-Launch" phase to the "Active" phase.

Over 200,000 fathers nation wide have participated in the Watch D.O.G.S. program in 2400 schools in 42 states and D.C.

The National PTA and 11 State PTAs have seen Watch D.O.G.S. as an avenue to increase male participation and membership at the local school level.

Schools find that this inexpensive and simple program is a great way to increase community networking and bring additional resources to the school. It also brings new and excited members to your PTA and other school activities.
