Teen Employment

Parent School Authorization Form: Students should be given this form by their employer.  Once the form has been completely filled out and signed by the Employer, Employee (student), and Parent/Guardian then the form can be emailed to Sandra Lordahl at for the school signature.    

This form is for parents/legal guardians and school officials to indicate approval for a minor employee to work according to the terms listed by the employer.  During the summer months there is a Parent Authorization for summer work that does not require a school signature.  Please note, this is not a Minor Work Permit.  The Minor Work Permit is an endorsement that Employers (not the student) must have on their Master Business License for each work location with employees under age 18.
