Work permits protect child actors. They must be signed by school personnel and are your “ticket out of class” when your child gets a job. They are issued for six months and must be renewed every six months until your child graduates from high school or who passes the CHSPE and becomes “Legal 18.”
During the summer months, a copy of your child’s report card will take the place of a school signature. For more information on the permits themselves, read the Bizparentz work permit information page. There are also procedures for those who are homeschooling or are on independent study. To talk about this with other parents, check out this page.
