WORK PERMITS

According to California law, students under 18 years old need a work permit.  To be eligible for a Work Permit, students must earn a 2.0 GPA or higher on the most recent quarter/semester report card, come to school at least 90% of the time, and have no more than 6 periods of truancy.

Eligible students obtain Work Permit applications in the Work Experience Office room 2-11, open 9:00 am to 2:00 pm.  No Work Permits are processed when school is closed. The student, parent and the employer must complete the application, and then it is submitted to the Work Experience Office for processing.  All Work Permits must be renewed within 5 days of the start of every new school year in August. Allow 24-48 hours for processing and approval.

Summer Vacation Work Permits do not require having a 2.0 GPA, however, you will only be able to work over summer.  During the summer Work Permits are processed in the Main Office. In order to renew your Work Permit in August, your grades and attendance will be re-evaluated, and if you do not meet the minimum eligibility criteria, your Work Permit will not be renewed.
