If you are under the age of 18, the State of California requires you to complete a Student Work Permit form in order to be eligible to work. Here is the process:
1. Down load the Work Permit Application and take it to the employer who hired you. (You need to have secured a job first.)
2. Bring the completed form to Ontario HS anytime Monday – Friday between 9AM – 1PM for verification.
3. Pick up the form from OHS the following Wednesday and return it to your employer.
ROP Classes Help Everyone
These classes are not just for students who are behind in credit. They provide valuable career training through hands-on experiences by industry professionals and teach critical employment skills. These courses help prepare students for college and career opportunities. Students can earn Industry Certifications and community college credit in some courses. ROP classes are Free and earn High school credit.
Any student who in interested in learning about a career and gaining employment skills should consider taking ROP classes!
College and Career
Four Year Universities
The Chaffey District has established MOUs with 9 universities. These agreements guarantee that an OHS student will be admitted to any of these universities if they meet their requirements and deadlines. Please contact each university to review the requirements and deadlines for the MOU.

Talk to your counselor about your options.

How to Pay for College
The student must create their own FSA ID. This ID is unique to each person and is required for signing the FAFSA electronically. Parents and students must create their own account.
Save your FSA ID and password in a safe place so you can access this information later. (I recommend keeping a log of your IDs and passwords on your phone. Please make sure your phone is secure, so your passwords are safe.)
Go to https://studentaid.gov
Click on the "Log In" button to start your FAFSA application. You will need your FSA ID. (You do not need to "Create Account" because you did that in Step 1.)
The application process is simple to follow on the Federal Student Aid website. There are plenty of resources on the site that will help you complete the application.

Your parents’ Social Security numbers
