What does the school require to keep a work permit?
Eligibility for a work permit is a 2.0 GPA and satisfactory school attendance. No exceptions will be made. If a student's GPA falls below a Total Unweighted GPA of 2.0 during the previous six-week grading period, the student's employer will be notified and the work permit will be removed. Once a progress report indicates a 2.0 GPA or above, the work permit can be reinstated.
Do work permits expire?
Work permits issued during the school year shall expire five days after the opening of the next succeeding school year. Before the work permit expires, a student may apply for a renewed work permit in accordance with the procedures specified in "School Requirements".
Can a student receive a work permit during holidays and summer vacations?
If the school site is closed during a holiday break or summer vacation, a work permit can be granted through the Vista Unified School District Office located at 1234 Arcadia Avenue in Vista. The student may be able to pick up the work permit application at the school site, but the completed application needs to get approval and work permit issuance at the district office. Call the district office at 760-726-2170 to receive hours of operation during holiday breaks and summer vacations.
