How Do I get my Working Papers?
SBCS students may recieve their Working Papers from their 6-8th Grade School Counselor, Ms. Garigen. Please keep in mind the following information when preparing to obtain your Working Papers:
1. Students must be 14 to obtain their Working Papers. They can see Ms. Coates for a Working Paper Application and Physical Form. BOTH forms need to be completed in order for Working Papers to be processed.
2. Once recieved, the Working Permit is valid until the student turns 16 years old, at which point you are required to re-apply for a different working permit (also obtained through your school counselor).
3. Your Working Papers may be revoked at any time due to:
*Concerns with Attendance (attending school less than 85% of the school year), per the Buffalo Board of Education.
*If you are failing 4 or more classes in school (including core subjects as well as special areas), per the NYS Department of Labor.
*Failure to return a revoked Working Permit (for the above mentioned reasons) may result in a delay of new/renewed working papers.
4. Please inform Ms. Garigen of your place of employment as well as any updated employment information should there be any changes.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Ms. Garigen at (716) 826-7213 x621. Thank You!
