Under the current Pennsylvania Child Labor Act, a minor (under the age of 18) must obtain working papers to qualify for employment. The School District provides work permits for all CTE students who engage in work-study, which requires a completed Working Papers application.
Please be advised there is no deadline for working papers. We simply switch our schedule after the school year ends. You will find this schedule below.
