If you are working a summer job that will start after school closes in June, and will terminate before school starts in the fall, no work permit is required; however, your employer may request one.  Even though the permit is not required, completion of the Parent/Guardian Consent form, along with proof of age and a statement signed by your parent or guardian consenting to the proposed employment during the summer, is required.

Applications will be available throughout the summer for jobs that will extend past the start of school.
