Summer Work Permits

The College & Career Center is closed during the summer, but you can still request a work permit through the front office.

1. Print a Work Permit Application Form or pick up an application from the front desk during office hours.

2. Make sure the application is completely filled in by all parties (student, parent and employer).

3. Write your cell phone number on top (in case we need to contact you), as well as your student ID.

4. Bring completed application to the front office during office hours.

After your Work Permit is processed, you will be contacted on how to receive your completed Work Permit within two business days. 

Grades and attendance are not a factor when issuing a Summer Work Permit. However, all work permits issued throughout the school year and during summer, expire August 18, 2023.  In order to renew your work permit, your grades and attendance (from last posted) will be re-evaluated and if you do not meet the minimum eligibility criteria, your work permit will not be renewed.

REgular Work permit Requirements

You do not need a work permit to look for a job, however, in order to comply with California Labor Laws, all minors under age 18 (including minors employed by parents) must have a work permit before your first day of work.

In order to be eligible for a work permit, the student must:

  • have and maintain a 2.0 or higher GPA
  • have and maintain a 90% attendance rate
  • have and maintain less than 6 periods of truancy 

Records will be reviewed regularly and work permits will be revoked for students who do not meet these requirements. 

Keep in Mind: Work permits must be renewed at the start of each school year or at the the time a student obtains a new job.
