light of the COVID 19 school closure, Willoughby Eastlake will no longer
process work permits at the Board
of Education offices. If you are in need of a work permit, please follow the procedures below.
How can students go about obtaining a work permit under Ohio’s Minor Labor Laws if schools are closed?
According to the Ohio Department of Commerce, if a minor has all necessary paperwork completed and is unable to get the permit processed due to school closure, the completed paperwork may itself stand in the place of the physically printed permit. Employers should keep the paperwork on file, just like they would the permit. The formal permit should be processed as soon as the school is reopened.
reminder, hour restrictions outlined in Ohio
Revised Code Section 4109 are still in place for any week that
was not a pre-planned school holiday (i.e., spring break) and the
prohibited/hazardous occupation restrictions are still active.

Under Ohio law, 3rd grade students need to demonstrate proficiency on a reading assessment in order to be promoted to 4th grade. The reading assessment can include the AIR test or an alternate assessment approved by the state. The alternate assessment Willoughby-Eastlake offers is MAP. Our district offers the AIR test three times per year (fall, spring and summer) and MAP testing three times per year (fall, winter, spring). If a child demonstrates proficiency on one of these assessments, s/he will be promoted to 4th grade.
