  5        SECTION  1.  That  Section 33-5206, Idaho Code, be, and the same is hereby
  6    amended to read as follows:
                                                                        
  7        33-5206.  REQUIREMENTS AND PROHIBITIONS UPON APPROVAL OF A CHARTER SCHOOL.
  8    (1) In addition to any other requirements imposed in this chapter,  a  charter
  9    school  shall  be  nonsectarian in its programs, affiliations, admission poli-
 10    cies, employment  practices,  and  all  other  operations,  shall  not  charge
 11    tuition,  levy  taxes  or  issue bonds, and shall not discriminate against any
 12    student on any basis prohibited by the federal or state constitutions  or  any
 13    federal, state or local law. Admission to a charter school shall not be deter-
 14    mined  according to the place of residence of the student, or of the student's
 15    parent or guardian within the  district,  except  that  a  new  or  conversion
 16    charter  school  established  under the provisions of this chapter shall adopt
 17    and maintain a policy giving  admission  preference  to  students  who  reside
 18    within  the  attendance  area of that school. The attendance area of a charter
 19    school, as described in the petition, shall be composed of compact and contig-
 20    uous areas.
 21        (2)  No board of trustees shall require any employee of  the  school  dis-
 22    trict to be involuntarily assigned to work in a charter school.
 23        (3)  Certified  teachers  in  a  charter school shall be considered public
 24    school teachers. Educational experience shall accrue for service in a  charter
 25    school  and  such  experience shall be counted by any school district to which
 26    the teacher returns after employment in a charter school.
 27        (4)  No board of trustees shall require any student enrolled in the school
 28    district to attend a charter school.
 29        (5)  Upon approval of the petition by the board  of  trustees,  the  peti-
 30    tioner  shall provide written notice of that approval, including a copy of the
 31    petition, to the state board of education. For the purpose of implementing the
 32    provisions of section 33-5203(2), Idaho Code, the  state  board  of  education
 33    shall  assign  a  number to each petition it receives. Petitions shall be num-
 34    bered based on the chronological order in which notice of the  approved  peti-
 35    tion is received by the state board of education.
 36        (6)  Each charter school shall annually submit a report to the local board
 37    of  trustees  which  approved its charter. In the case of a new charter school
 38    whose charter was granted by the state board of education pursuant to  section
 39    33-5207,  Idaho  Code, the annual report shall be submitted to the state board
 40    of  education.  The  report  shall  contain  the  audit  of  the  fiscal   and
 41    programmatic  operations  as  required in section 33-5205(3)(j), Idaho Code, a
 42    report on student progress based on the charter school's  student  educational
 43    standards  identified  in section 33-5205(3)(b), Idaho Code, and a copy of the
