Modoc Joint USD | BP 5113.2 Students
The Board of Trustees recognizes that part-time jobs can provide students with income, work experience, and enhanced self-esteem. In accordance with law, students shall obtain work permits from school authorities before accepting employment.
(cf. 6178.1 - Work Experience Education)
In determining whether to grant a work permit, the Superintendent or designee shall consider whether employment will significantly interfere with the student's schoolwork or jeopardize his/her health. Students granted work permits must demonstrate and maintain satisfactory grades.
(cf. 5121 - Grades/Evaluation of Student Achievement)
Work permits for students who are ages 14-17 shall be limited to part-time employment as defined by law and administrative regulation, except when the Superintendent or designee determines that circumstances warrant the granting of a permit for full-time employment.
Students with work permits may be exempted from attendance in a full-time day school, provided they attend part-time classes. Students granted permits for full-time employment shall be enrolled in part-time continuation classes. (Education Code 48230, 49135)
