Work Permit Application
Students: Congratulations on securing a job!
Students, parents & employees,
Summer Work Permits will end August 12, 2022. Students, if you are planning to continue to work during the school year, you will need to apply for a new work permit. We will begin accepting new applications for the 2022-23 school year on August 1st. We will not process any applications during the week on July 25th to prepare for the new school year.
To obtain a work permit, students must initiate the application.
Note: A student needs her/his guardian's email and employer's 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.
For further guidance on completing your application this presentation.
