Work PdermitStudent Work Permits

In Executive Order 2020-79, issued on May 11 at 9:43 p.m., Governor Whitmer temporarily suspended the requirement that an application of a work permit be made in person. An issuing officer may accept and examine a work permit application (including any accompanying materials) submitted by alternative means including mail, e-mail, fax, or web-based form. Due to the temporary suspension, the color of work permits for minors under 16 years of age does not need to be distinct from that of work permits for minors 16 years of age and over. This order is effective immediately and continues through July 3, 2020.  

Essentially, this means that work permits do not have to be brought into the school to be signed (although they can be). Work permits can be faxed to 989-348-7799 or emailed to tbonamie@casdk12.net. Work permits can also be mailed to 1135 North Old US 27 to the attention of Teresa Bonamie. Work permits are available in the Main Office. (People entering the building must wear masks.)

Students are still required to have a signed work permit prior to starting a job. As we are still providing educational services to all students, students cannot work during school hours (8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday) until the school year ends.

Administrative team is reorganized

With the retirement of principal Donna Boughner, Sarah Allen has moved from assistant principal to principal, and instructor Levi Burkett has taken over the role of assistant principal. Read more about the administrative changes at GHS in the Crawford County Avalanche


Jeff Branch continues as career readiness coordinator

Jeff Branch, who developed a work-based learning program last year at GHS when he served as assistant principal, is continuing his duties as career readiness coordinator. Work-based learning experiences provide pupils with planned programs of job training and other employment experiences related to their chosen careers. Placement is coordinated by the CASD through a training agreement with employers providing paid or unpaid educational experiences related to school instruction during school hours. For information, contact Jeff Branch at 989-344-3550, ext. 3427 or jbranch@casdk12.net. Read more about the career readiness program in the Crawford County Avalanche
