REQUIREMENTS TO QUALIFY:
The student has a 2.0 GPA or better

YOU DO NOT NEED A WORK PERMIT TO APPLY FOR A JOB. YOU ONLY NEED A WORK PERMIT PROCESSED IF YOU HAVE BEEN OFFICIALLY HIRED BY A COMPANY.
*The following sections must be completed before your work permit is processed: Student info with SSN, Employer "supervisor" info and signature, Parent signature. An incomplete work permit application will delay the processing time of your permit.
Please allow 24 hour turn around after you have dropped off the request form.
To qualify for a work permit, you must have a 2.0+ GPA, no F grades, and satisfactory attendance. If you do not qualify, your admin/Vice Principal's approval will be needed before Mrs. Desmangles may issues the work permit.
IMPORTANT DETAILS ABOUT WORK PERMITS:
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).
A:Yes. As a condition of issuance, the local district, school, or work permit issuer may reduce maximum work hours and impose additional occupational restrictions. The authorized work permit issuer does not have discretion to extend hours beyond the maximum specified or waive any occupational restrictions.
Q: Does a student have to present his/her Social Security card to school authorities when applying for a work permit?
A: No. The work permit application (CDE Form B1-1) and work permit (CDE Form B1-4) shall contain, among other information, the name, address, telephone number, and Social Security number of the minor (EC sections 49115 and 49163). The statutes do not specify that the card itself must be presented, only the number.
Q: Are work permits job specific?
A: Yes. Every job requires it's own permit. Students no longer need permits once they turn 18 years of age or have graduated from high school, whichever comes first.
