Limits on attendance
    
Sec. 5. (a) Except as provided in subsections (b), (c), and (d), a charter school must enroll any eligible student who submits a timely application for enrollment.
    (b) This subsection applies if the number of applications for a program, class, grade level, or building exceeds the capacity of the program, class, grade level, or building. If a charter school receives a greater number of applications than there are spaces for students, each timely applicant must be given an equal chance of admission. The organizer must determine which of the applicants will be admitted to the charter school or the program, class, grade level, or building by random drawing in a public meeting.
    (c) A charter school may limit new admissions to the charter school to:
        (1) ensure that a student who attends the charter school during a school year may continue to attend the charter school in subsequent years; and
        (2) allow the siblings of a student who attends a charter school to attend the charter school.


    (d) This subsection applies to an existing school that converts to a charter school under IC 20-24-11. During the school year in which the existing school converts to a charter school, the charter school may limit admission to:
        (1) those students who were enrolled in the charter school on the date of the conversion; and
        (2) siblings of students described in subdivision (1).
