    Before visiting the Work Experience Education Office for a Work Permit,

    please view our calendar below for office dates/hours

    LAUSD students seeking General Work Permits during the Summer should contact their school of attendance first to determine if their school will be issuing permits. If work permits may not be obtained from the school site, the Work Experience Education Office will be open to assist students.

    General Work Permits may NOT be issued electronically due to the sensitive nature of Personal Identifiable Information (PII). To obtain a General Work Permit, a student MUST present the following:

    • Statement of Intent to Employ a Minor and Request for a Work Permit - Certificate of Age B1-1 form (Must be completed in full by the student, parent, and employer). Students should NOT email this form to and from the employer. You are jeopardizing your personal information being exposed to hackers.
    • Current Photo ID (Government ID, Valid Passport, or Photo School ID: must include the date of birth)
    • The minor (student) MUST be present to sign the work permit before it may be issued. 

    Work Permits may also be obtained by LAUSD students at one of the Youth Source Centers across LAUSD through July 30, 2021. Please contact the PSA Counselor via email or office number found by clicking the YSC schedule for an appointmentYSC July Schedule
