Work PermitNorth Judson-San Pierre High School does not encourage students to take jobs outside of school that could interfere with their success in school. If a student believes that he/she must maintain a job in addition to going to school, he/she must first make contact with his/her counselor to discuss any legal requirements and obtain any needed documents.
The school may deny a work permit to a student whose academic performance does not meet the school’s standards or whose attendance is not in good standing. It also has the right to revoke a work permit previously issued to a student if the school determines that there has been a significant decrease in the student’s grade point average or attendance after he/she begins to work. When it appears that a job is detrimental to a student’s academic status, the school will advise the parents and the employer to ensure that the student’s education remains the primary focus.
Should the work permit be revoked at the end of the school year, the student may be allowed to work during the summer while school is not in session. However, such student will lose the work permit at the start of the new school year until he/she meets the attendance and grade standards established by the school for receiving work permit.
Work permits must be obtained by students between the ages of 14 and 17 to allow them to hold a job.
To obtain a work permit, a student must get an “Intent to Employ” card from the guidance office registrar. This card must be filled out and signed by the student, parent, and employer. A work permit will be issued when the “Intent to Employ” card is returned to the guidance office registrar.
