Outside of academics, students benefit from life skills learned in the work place. This can be gained through unpaid or paid work. Weston High School grants credit for certain kinds of community service. We offer opportunities for paid work as well, by posting positions on this website.
There are two types of community service recognized by Weston High School, one is for recognition in the form of a community service award and the other is for credit. There are key differences in the requirements and timeframes for completion of the service activities.
In order to be recognized for completing community service students must complete the appropriate Community Service Form. There is one form for those doing community service for a certificate and one for those doing community service for credit. Please see the forms for details. Forms are also available in the guidance office.

So, you want to get a job?! In order to complete the employment process with a company, you need to comply with certain legal regulations that are stipulated by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. There are changes to this process that are made fairly regularly, so we have provided this document to assist you through the process. Students need to follow the steps outlined in the Work Permit Directions. Download the Work Permit Directions before contacting Chris Wadsworth, the Guidance Secretary, who issues the official work permit.
