Work Permits   

arrow Previous bar Next arrow

The Board of Education recognizes that part-time employment can provide students with income as well as job experience that can help them develop appropriate workplace skills and attitudes. Upon obtaining an offer of employment, district students who are minors shall obtain work permits from the Superintendent or designee in accordance with law, regardless of whether the employment will occur when school is in session and/or not in session.

Students residing within EGUSD boundaries but attending non-district schools must obtain permits from their school or district of attendance. The district Superintendent or designee will not issue summer work permits for out-of-state students.

(cf. 6178 - Career Technical Education)

In determining whether to grant or continue a work permit, the Superintendent or designee shall consider whether employment is likely to significantly interfere with the student's schoolwork. Students granted work permits must demonstrate and maintain a 2.0 grade point average, no "F" grades in the term preceding the request for the work permit and satisfactory school attendance. On a case-by-case basis, the Superintendent or designee may approve a maximum work hour limit that is lower than the limit specified in law and administrative regulation.

(cf. 5121 - Grades/Evaluation of Student Achievement)

Students with work permits may be exempted from attendance in a full-time day school provided they are enrolled in Work Experience Education and attend part-time classes. (Education Code 48230)

(cf. 5112.1 - Exemptions from Attendance)

Work permits shall be limited to part-time employment as defined by law, except when the Superintendent or designee determines that circumstances warrant the granting of a permit for full-time employment or when a student is enrolled in Work Experience Education.

Any student authorized to work full time when school is in session shall be enrolled in part-time continuation classes.

(cf. 6178.1 - Work Based Learning)

(cf. 6184 - Continuation Education)
