I. General Work Permits
If a high school student needs to obtain a general work permit during the school year, the student needs to go to the high school he/she is currently attending. If the student is currently attending a middle school, the student needs to go to their home high school. To work, the student must be at least the age of 14 (except for entertainment, agricultural and domestic work).
We are located at 101 E. Bush Street, Lemoore, CA 93245. Work Permits can be obtained through the Career Center on the Lemoore High School campus at any time during normal work hours.
When requesting the work permit, the STUDENT must bring the following:
1) Completed Statement of Intent to Employ Minor and Request for Work Permit (B1-1) form- make sure that the parent and the employer have signed the form- you can download the form by clicking the following link: http://www.cde.ca.gov/ci/ct/we/documents/b1-1frm.doc

2) A current ID card (i.e. school, DMV, passport)- CHECK CASHING ID CARDS ARE NOT ACCEPTED!!!!!
