Work Permit Requirements


Work permits are considered a privilege and will only be issued to students who meet the following criteria:


Satisfactory academic progress

Maintaining a GPA of 2.0 or higher & passing a minimum of 4 courses during the latest 6-week grading period of the regular school year at its corresponding high school of the EUHSD.

Satisfactory attendance

Not being classified as “habitually truant” or “excessively absent” as determined by the guidelines of the EUHSD & its corresponding high schools’ Attendance Office.

  2. Students failing to meet one of these requirements may be considered for issuance of a “probationary” work permit for a maximum of six weeks.
  3. Failure to maintain the district standards during any 6-week period will result in either the work permit being placed on probationary status or revoked.
  4. Grades will be checked within one week following the end of each grading period.
  5. Parents and employers will be notified of all work permits being placed on probation or revoked.
