Instructions for work permit requests:
Drop off your completed* work permit application in the Career Center or the front office (in Mrs. Lott's box) before or after school.
*The following sections must be completed before your work permit is processed: Student info with SSN, Employer info and signature, Parent signature. An incomplete work permit application will delay the processing time of your permit.
Mrs. Lott will contact you at your student email address within 1 business day when your work permit is ready to be picked up. Students must be present at pick up appointments.
Work permits take 24 hours to process.
To qualify for a work permit, you must have a 2.0+ GPA, no F grades, and satisfactory attendance/online engagement. If you do not qualify, admin and counselor approval will be needed before Mrs. Lott issues the work permit.
Important details you need to know about work permits:
Students do not need a work permit to apply for a job - work permits are needed once a student has been hired.
Students need work permits 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 work permit application (or page 2).
