Work Permits

Work Permit Application Forms available:

  • in the Attendance Office
  • in the College & Career Center, Rm V-127
  • Students can also print an application from their aeries student portal.

Applications:

  • Applications must be completely filled out by the student, the employer, and signed by a parent before they can be process by OHS.
  • We cannot accept applications without the student’s Social Security Number.
  • We do not process applications for students that are not OHS students—these students would need to contact the Educational Support Services office—Dora Jaramillo 760.966.7828.

Approving Work Permits:

  • Students can drop off a completed application to the College & Career Center or place in Ms. Celia Hernandez box
  • Must allow at least 48 hours for the application to be processed
  • Only the Principal may sign the work permit
  • Schools are not required to approve work permits –it is a privilege for a student to be allowed to work while going to school.  School must come first. Therefore our policy is to :
    • Verify SS# and birthdate of student
    • Check discipline issues
    • Check attendance issues
      • –according to CA law, truant students cannot be issued a work permit
    • Check grades—should have at least a 2.0 GPA (AARC students must be approved by their counselor to work)
  • If approved, an "official" work permit is issued and signed by the Principal
  • Students can pick it up from Ms. Hernandez or it can be mailed directly to the employer, upon request.

Students must maintain a 2.0 GPA, satisfactory attendance & behavior or the permit may be revoked.(students with low grades/GPA’s are flagged and monitored each grading period)

Work permits expire at the end of August during each school year.
