Santa Cruz High School Parking Permits

This application form must be completed for vehicles that are parked in the Santa Cruz High School designated parking spaces. Many situations arise during the day that warrant immediate vehicle identification, such as leaving headlights on, moving vehicles due to campus repair, etc. Additionally, we must ascertain whether or not a car is parked in accordance with the City Residential Parking Program. These situations can be expedited through proper vehicle identification.

It is the policy of the Santa Cruz High School and the City of Santa Cruz that ALL vehicles parked in the Santa Cruz High parking zones be identified through use of a Santa Cruz High parking permit. Parking zones and times will be clearly marked on parking signs. Student/Community vehicles parked without a visible and current permit or those parked in a staff designated parking area will be subject to a parking citation by the City of Santa Cruz parking office. Vehicles parked incorrectly or exceeding the posted parking hours may be towed at the owner's expense. 

Only the current year permits are valid. Check with Jeanie in the finance office to obtain the current permit sticker. Each permit will be distributed to an individual person with completed application form and the $10.00 fee. Applications for new permits are available year round. It is your responsibility to familiarize yourself with established parking regulations. Santa Cruz High is NOT responsible for vehicle safety, damages, or items stolen from vehicles.
