A. Start-up schools and conversion schools are subject to the following enrollment procedures:

B. In subsequent years of its operation, a charter school shall give enrollment preference to:

(1) students who have been admitted to the charter school through an appropriate admission process and remain in attendance through subsequent grades; and
