STEP 5: Request Work Permit
When requesting the work permit, the student must present a government issued identification card that shows the birth date (examples: driver's license, birth certificate, or passport). Additionally, the student is required to sign the work permit upon issuance.
** Notes for Hart District Students:
When school is in session, Hart District students submit completed STATEMENT OF INTENT TO EMPLOY A MINOR AND REQUEST FOR A WORK PERMIT – CERTIFICATE OF AGE to the administration office at their school sites. The form must be signed by the employer and a parent/guardian.
When school sites are closed, alternative work permit issuing arrangements can be found on this website.
Contact the Registrar at your school regarding Applications for Permission to Work in the Entertainment Industry. These forms are not completed at the District Office location.
- Applications for permission to work in ENTERTAINMENT INDUSTRY need to be signed by the SCHOOL REGISTRAR at the school attended in Spring 2020.
- Private school students do not need verification of enrollment and attendance during summer months.
- Students need to secure a job before obtaining a work permit.
- High school graduates who are still 17 do not need a work permit.
