    1         Senate Amendment to Amendment (339770) (with directory and
    2  title amendments)
    4         Between lines 643 and 644
    5  insert:
    6         (j)1.For purposes of continuity of educational choice, the
    7  placement of a student in a charter school shall remain in force
    8  until the student voluntarily withdraws from the charter school
    9  or successfully completes the highest grade offered in the
   10  charter school. A charter school student who voluntarily enrolls
   11  in a different charter school, a district-operated public
   12  school, a private school, a virtual education program, a home
   13  education program, or other education program approved by law is
   14  considered to have voluntarily withdrawn from the charter school
   15  for the purpose of determining the end of the student’s
   16  enrollment. However, if a student enters a Department of
   17  Juvenile Justice detention center for less than 21 days, the
   18  student is not considered to have withdrawn from the charter
   19  school.
   20         2. Before a student is voluntarily withdrawn from a charter
   21  school, the parent and charter school personnel must sign a
   22  document stating that the student is being voluntarily withdrawn
   23  and that charter school personnel have not prohibited,
   24  discouraged, or attempted to discourage the student from
   25  continued enrollment in the charter school.
