Dear Oakland Community,
Due to shelter-in-place, all work permit applications for Oakland students will be processed electronically. Students must initiate the work permit application through this form.
All school sites are processing their own permits during the school year. Please refer to this table and follow-up with questions directly with your school contact:

As of June 30, 2020, OUSD is not processing work permits for Charter and Private schools. If you have questions or need support in this transition, please contact Greg Cluster at email@example.com. Please click here to reference the Oakland Charter and Private School Work Permit Directory.
OUSD will process work permits during the period of school closures. However, the work permit application process will take place electronically via electronic forms rather than via hard copies or PDFs. Due to Shelter-in-Place in the context of Covid-19, OUSD's Legal Department requires employers to complete a Covid Amendment, which certifies compliance with the Essential Services and Hygiene Requirements defined by the Alameda County Public Health Department. The required employer Covid Amendment is in the application linked below.
After receiving an offer of employment:
- The student initiates this form. Note that the student must be the initiator, not a guardian or employer. The student needs her/his guardian email and employer email to complete this step. Once the student completes her/his section, s/he routes it to the guardian, after which it gets routed to the employer.
- The Linked Learning Office reviews the completed forms and, if appropriate, routes to the school staff person listed above. School staff review and process applications, after which they email the completed work permit to the student’s email address.
- The student keeps an electronic copy of the work permit, and forwards a copy to the employer’s email address, so that the employer can also keep a copy of the work permit.
By law, in support of students' success in school and in their job, students may only work according to these guidelines:
