Work Permit Process
A Work Permit is required for employed students under 18 years of age who are still required to attend high school.
Step 1) Get a job. Work Permits are specific to your employer. Once you secure a job, then you can request a Work Permit from Oak Ridge High School.
Step 2) Bring your completed Request for a Work Permit to the College & Career Center. You must include a parent and employer signature.
