Work Permits & Driver's Education


Got a job? Congratulations! You have been hired, now what?
In order to qualify for a work permit, students must have appropriate attendance and good grades. A minimum GPA of a 2.5 is required for a general permit. If a student's GPA is lower than a 2.5, a probationary permit MAY be granted. An administrator will review the student's complete application and academic record to determine if a probationary permit is appropriate and will be granted. Students are allowed one probationary permit a year.

Come to the College and Career Center located in the Library, or download the Workers Permit Application below. Take this application to your employer to fill out information showing compliance with the California Labor laws as well as the worker's compensation laws. Your parent/legal guardian must also sign to show consent.
For questions or concerns, contact Tonya Watson in the College and Career Center:

For more information, read the General guidelines.


Driver Education is being offered to students in the 10th grade as an independent study course. Independent Driver Education is optional and is not a graduation requirement. The student will meet with me once a week on Fridays starting at 2:00 pm in room 810.  Each student will be required to do homework and take a test. Upon Satisfactory completion of the course requirement, students will receive a DMV Certificate of completion signed by the teacher that will authorize them to take the written test administered by the DMV. Completion of the behind-the wheel training is the responsibility of the student. Students will receive a Pass or Fail grade. 2 ½ elective credits are earned for completing the course. Registration will be based on the student’s birthday. If you are a newly registered 10th grader or already 16, contact Coach Maholchic as soon as possible concerning your enrollment.
