Instructions on how to obtain a work permit during school closure

Students need to secure a job before obtaining a work permit

A work permit is a legal document required by the state of California that allows a person under 18 years of age to hold a job. You must have good attendance and be academically eligible (2.0 GPA or Higher).

Follow these steps in obtaining a work permit:

Students will print out the Form B1-1 Statement of Intent to Employ a Minor and Request for Work Permit-Certificate of Age.

  1. Students will complete Minor’s Information and School Information.
  2. Parent or legal guardians must sign their portion of the form.

  4. Students must scan and email completed FormĀ  B1-1 with all signatures to their counselor, either Dana Blood, [email protected], Kody Miller, [email protected], or the counseling assistant Debbra Moser, [email protected]. If a student does not have a scanner, download a scanner app such as Simple Scanner from their phone’s app store, take a photo of the completed document and email this document to the appropriate email.
  5. Students must print the Permit to Employ and Work (Form B1-4), sign and date the “minor’s signature” section, then scan and email completed Permit to Employ and Work (Form B1-4) to their counselor or counseling assistant.
