• Work permits are required for students, 14-17, living within the district

    Bellefonte Area School District is responsible for issuing work permits to all minors who reside in the district, including those who attend non-public schools, cyber charter schools or are participating in a home education program.

    To apply, please bring a valid form of identification such as a birth certificate, baptismal certificate, passport or driver's license to BASD's central office, 318 N. Allegheny St., Bellefonte. The student must also be present to apply. A parent or guardian is not required to be there, however, a work permit will not be issued until the district has the signature of the parent on the application.

  • More information

    The administration office does not keep student records on hand and will need a physical form of identification. Pennsylvania Child Labor Laws require the district to have identification in person when the student applies.
