C. Background

Under current law, private school students have sometimes been unable
to obtain work permits even though they have the full approval and
support of their parents and their schools of enrollment. By allowing
private school principals to issue permits to their own students, AB
66 ensures that work permits will be available equally to all
students.

AB 66 also specifies that the hours during which a student can work
shall be based on the calendar of the school that the student attends.
Under current law, student work hours are based on the public school
calendar, even for students who do not attend public school.

We have been working intensely in the Legislature for the past 4 years
to make work permits more accessible to all private school students,
including those in home-based private schools (i.e. homeschools).
This year, as in previous years, it has been important strategically
to work behind the scenes until now. If the Governor signs this bill,
it will become law effective January 1, 2010.

For us, good customer service is both an art and a science
