No, AB 66 does not change the hour limitations for child work permits in the state of Claifornia. The confusing subsection is (f) which has been misinterperted to give principals the authority to change the number of hours a student may work. This is incorrect.
AB 66 subsection (f) simply equalized private school and public school students by allowing private school students to follow their own school calendar.
AB 66 was intended to provide alternates to the district superintendents and principals so that they could approve work permits in a timely fashion and by people who personally know the students academic performance.
