  • Academics (no F’s in any class; no more than two D’s)
  • No more than five (5) days with unexcused absences
  • No more than ten (10) total tardies

If these requirements are met, a work permit will be finalized upon receiving a completed “Intention To Employ/A1” form. This form may is available in the main office or online from the Indiana Department of Labor:
