3. Take photos of the completed forms. Send the completed forms to Ms. Mendiaz via email or you can drop the forms off in-person at the College & Career Center. You must send your work permit documents through your Escondido Union High School District student account to ensure confidentiality.
4. Check your school email in 2-3 school days for a copy of your work permit that can be printed and taken to your employer. You may begin work as soon as you receive that file. The official work permit can be sent to your employer by U.S. mail, at your request, addressed to your manager. For students who dropped off their work permit in-person, wait 2-3 days before checking in with Ms. Mendiaz about the status of your work permit.
