All minors under age 18 (unless a high school graduate or equivalent), including minors employed by parents, (Ed.C. 49141) must have a work permit. Applications are available at Beyer High School and at the Modesto City Schools District Office. All Work Permits expire five (5) days after school starts and must be re-issued at the start of each school year or at the time the student obtains a new job. Work Permits are required all year, not just when school is in session. It serves as an age certificate and states the maximum hours a minor may work based on their age (Ed. C. 49160).
