• The Pennsylvania Department of Labor & Industry has waived the in-person requirements of the work permit process for the remainder of the 2019-20 academic year and while the Governor’s stay at home order is in effect.

    The steps below describe the temporarily modified procedures. 

    1. The student will download and complete the electronic Work Permit application from the PDE website. Students unable to access the electronic application should call (610) 697 – 0111 or email choronesc@cattysd.org to request that a paper application be mailed to them.
    2. The student’s parent or legal guardian electronically signs the PDF or signs the paper application.
    3. The student attaches proof of age document (Birth Certificate, Passport, Driver’s License or Permit) to the completed application.
    4. If applying electronically, the student may attach digital copies, such as a scan or digital photograph.
    5. If applying by mail with a paper application, the student should include photocopies of the required documents.
    6. Upon receipt of the application and documentation, the issuing secretary at CHS will schedule a Google Meet appointment, through the student’s CASD email, with the student.
    7. The school district issuing officer ensures that all the documents required by law have been examined, approved, and filed, and all conditions and requirements for issuing a permit have been fulfilled.
    8. The issuing officer will mail to the minor a paperwork permit bearing a number, the date of issuance, and the signature of the issuing officer.
    9. The student signs the work permit when received and shows it to the employer, who makes a copy for their records. The student retains the original work permit.
