7470 EMPLOYMENT OF STUDENTS OF MINOR AGE

 

         A minor's work hours shall be in accordance with all applicable federal and state laws and regulations as well as requirements established by the School District.

 

         Pursuant to Education Law, minors may be employed when attendance upon instruction is not required, provided they obtain a valid employment certificate or permit (if applicable); and provided such employment is not prohibited by and/or in violation of the Labor Law or other law.

 

         Minors may not work during the hours they are required to attend school unless otherwise authorized pursuant to law and/or regulation.

 

         However, students at least fourteen (14) years of age may be employed during the school lunch period in their school's cafeteria if the minor presents a valid employment certificate issued in accordance with Education Law.

 

         Students sixteen (16) and seventeen (17) years of age may work when school is in session until 10 p.m. on any day preceding a school day. However, students sixteen (16) and seventeen (17) years of age may work between 10 p.m. and midnight on any day preceding a school day provided the employer receives and maintains both the written consent of the student's parent/guardian and a certificate from the student's school at the end of each marking period which asserts that the student is in satisfactory academic standing according to the standards established by the School District.

 

         Students sixteen (16) and seventeen (17) years of age may work between 10 p.m. and midnight on any day preceding a non-school day provided the employer receives and maintains the written consent of the parent/guardian.

 

         Before issuing a certificate of satisfactory academic standing, the District shall ensure that students and their parents/guardians are afforded all legal rights and protections, including the right of consent, in complying with requests for disclosure of student records and information from such records under the federal Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act.
