Seal of Biliteracy - That time of the year has arrived for juniors to take advantage of signing up for the upcoming Seal of Biliteracy Exam. This exam is open for all World Language students as well as heritage and native speakers. Students who are “seal-eligible” when applying to colleges, may indicate this on their applications. SCSU and UNH have already agreed to give NHPS students college credit for languages if they enter with the Seal of Biliteracy. Read about the benfits and register here:
Artspace's Student Apprenticeship Program (SAP) - Summer program for New Haven Public High School Students July 6-July 23. Classes will be held M-F, 1-4pm. This year participants will learn to create art using virtual reality technology. You will receive a $250 stipend for participating. This can count as your internship. Only two students per high school are chosen by lottery. You must fill out the application and submit it by May 15.
Work Permits - To have working papers issued by the Office of School Choice & Enrollment, the student must have an official Promise of Employment letter. The Promise of Employment letter must detail the minor’s legal name, the rate of pay, hours and a specific list of tasks they will be performing and be on the company’s letterhead. The Enrollment Office will not accept forms missing information. Please note, students must be hired prior to requesting working papers.
The parent or the minor child must email the Promise of Employment letter along with proof of age (if the child is not currently enrolled in a New Haven Public School) to NHPSRegistration@new-haven.k12.ct.us
Once received the Office of School Choice & Enrollment will process the signed and stamped working paper to the parent or minor child. This should be presented to the employer for record keeping and compliance. Typically, working papers are processed and available within 24 to 48 hours.
A staff member from the Office of School Choice & Enrollment will contact the student once the working papers are complete and ready for pick-up.
As the Enrollment Office is closed to the general public at this time, all items may be picked up at the security desk of 54 Meadow Street. The envelope will be sealed and bare the name of the minor child to be employed.
