Work Permits

Students: Congratulations on securing a job!

Students, parents & employees,

Summer Work Permits will expire August 12th. 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 applications for the 2023-24 school year on August 1st. We will not process any applications during the week of July 24 - 31st, to prepare for the new school year.

To obtain a work permit, the students must initiate this application or it will be denied.  (Parents or employers cannot complete the student's work permit application for the student employee.)

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 view this presentation.
