    IMPORTANT: YOU DO NOT NEED A WORK PERMIT UNTIL YOU HAVE BEEN OFFICIALLY HIRED BY A COMPANY. YOU FIND A JOB FIRST, AND THEN YOU SUBMIT YOUR WORK PERMIT REQUEST.

    Instructions for work permit requests:

    • SUBMITTING A REQUEST FOR WORK PERMIT FORM:

      • Submit your completed* Request for Work Permit form to Mrs. Lott in the Career Center by 3:00pm for next day processingRequests dropped off AFTER 3:00pm will not be ready for pickup the next day.

        *The following sections must be completed before your work permit is processed: Student info with SSN, Employer info and signature, Parent signature. All signatures must be wet ink signatures - Electronic signatures will not be accepted. An incomplete work permit application will delay the processing time of your permit.

    • PICKING UP YOUR OFFICIAL WORK PERMIT:

      • Pick up your work permit from the Career Center the next business day AFTER 12pm. Students must be present to pick up. Work permits may take 1-2 business days to process.

    To qualify for a work permit, you must currently have a 2.0+ GPA and/or no more than 1 F grade, and satisfactory attendance. If you do not qualify, admin and counselor approval will be needed before Mrs. Lott issues the work permit.

    Important details about work permits:

    • Students need a work permit if a) they are enrolled in high school AND if b) they are under 18 years old. Once a student turns 18, they do not need a work permit, even if they are still in high school. Once a student graduates from high school, they do not need a work permit, even if they are under 18 at the time of graduation.

    • The amount of hours a student can work is not decided on by the Career Center, but by the State of California. A breakdown of the hours allowed, based on age, is on the back of the Request of Work Permit form (or page 2).
