    Dear Oakland Community,


    Due to shelter-in-place, all work permits for Oakland students will be processed centrally through an online process. As of today, the process has changed from being based in Google Forms to a more user-friendly and streamlined interface.

    For Summer Work Permits, students can request Work Permits on or after May 29, 2020. Summer permits expire on August 16. As of now, we anticipate work permit applications to still be processed electronically at that time. Applications for schoolyear work permits will be accepted on or after August 10, 2020. 


    As of today, OUSD is not processing work permits for Charter and Private schools. If you have questions or need support please contact
