If a high school student requires a general work permit during the school year, the student needs to go to the high school he/she is currently attending to obtain it. If the student is currently attending a middle school, the student needs to go to their feeder track high school. In order to work, the student must be at least the age of 14 (except for entertainment, agricultural and domestic work).
The Student Services Department at the Covina-Valley Unified School District Office only issues work permits during summer break. We are located at 519 E. Badillo St., Covina, CA 91723 in the Student Services Department. We are open from 7:00 am to 4:30 pm.
When requesting the work permit, theSTUDENTmust bring the following:
The Student Services Department can supply school records verification.
We CANNOT supply health information. You will need to seek verification from a certified doctor.
Once you receive verification from our office and a certified doctor, the actual entertainment work permit is processed and issued by the State of California's Division of Labor Standards Enforcement Department (the second page of the application indicates the process of getting the actual entertainment work permit).
Entertainment Work Permits are renewable every 6 months while a minor is under 18 years old.
If there are any additional questions, please call your counselor at the high school where the student attends.
