This paper presents an executive summary of a study that uses a regression discontinuity (RD) design to assess the potential benefits of offering SES in districts that have unmet need. Specifically, the study focuses on six school districts in which more eligible students applied for SES than could be served with available funds (i.e., oversubscribed districts), and which therefore allocated scarce SES spaces by giving priority to lower-achieving students among the eligible applicants. Findings from this evaluation are based on six, nonrepresentative school districts in three states (Connecticut, Ohio, and Florida) where more eligible students applied for SES than could be served with available funds. Across the six oversubscribed districts included in our study, there were 50,843 applicants to SES, of which 30,673 were in study grades (3-8). Among these applicants, 24,113 were assigned to services based on a measure of prior achievement. These 24,113 constitute the study population. Among the students in the study population, 19,750 students (82 percent of the applicants) were offered SES based on their prior scores while 4,363 students were not offered SES, and 16,954 (86 percent of those offered services) participated in SES (i.e., reported any tutoring services). Almost all participating students (98 percent) were offered services with their first choice providers, with most students being served by a few dominant providers. (Contains 2 footnotes.)
