    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).
