    1.  14-15 year-olds - Your work permit is blue.


    2.  16-17 year-olds – Your work permit is green.

    **A new application and Physical Fitness Certification will be needed. **


    Additional Work Permit

    If you need another work permit for a new job (same color permit for the same age), stop by the Counseling Office.   A new work permit will be issued using the same permit number that was originally assigned, as your application is kept on file.
