    6  placement of a student in a charter school shall remain in force
    7  until the student voluntarily withdraws from the charter school
    8  or successfully completes the highest grade offered in the
    9  charter school. A charter school student who voluntarily enrolls
   10  in a different charter school, a district-operated public
   11  school, a private school, a virtual education program, a home
   12  education program, or other education program approved by law is
   13  considered to have voluntarily withdrawn from the charter school
   14  for the purpose of determining the end of the student’s
   15  enrollment. However, if a student enters a Department of
   16  Juvenile Justice detention center for less than 21 days, the
   17  student is not considered to have withdrawn from the charter
   18  school.
   19         2. Before a student is voluntarily withdrawn from a charter
   20  school, the parent and charter school personnel must sign a
   21  document stating that the student is being voluntarily withdrawn
   22  and that charter school personnel have not prohibited,
   23  discouraged, or attempted to discourage the student from
   24  continued enrollment in the charter school.
