All high school students need active work permits, regardless of age (even 18 year olds!)
During the school year - Pick up a work permit request form in the C&CC (or click link below). A work permit application is to be completed once you have a job. When the form is completely filled out by you, your employer (with signature), and signed by your parent, bring it to the C&CC and we will provide you with an "official work permit" to provide your employer which they keep on file. Typically work permits are processed within 24 hrs. Note: Please do not go to the district office to obtain a work permit during the school year. They must be issued by the high school where the student attends if school is in session.
During the summer: Requesting Summer Work Permits (after June 6)- SRVUSD Work Permit office hours 9:00a-1:00p M-F. If you need a summer work permit processed after June 6, take your fully completed work permit worksheet and ID to Educational Services (Bldg B) at the District Office, 699 Old Orchard Drive in Danville. It’s located on the northwest corner of the Sycamore Valley Road and Old Orchard Drive intersection.
