Dynamic Participation in Interdistrict Open Enrollment
Lavery, Lesley; Carlson, Deven
Educational Policy, v29 n5 p746-779 Jul 2015
Interdistrict open enrollment is the nation's largest and most widespread school choice program, but our knowledge of these programs is limited. Drawing on 5 years of student-level data from the universe of public school attendees in Colorado, we perform a three-stage analysis to examine the dynamics of student participation in the state's interdistrict open enrollment program. First, we explore the characteristics of students who open enroll in a defined baseline year. Second, we analyze the characteristics of students who continue to participate in the program in subsequent years. Finally, we examine the characteristics of students who--conditional on not open enrolling in the defined-baseline year--choose to participate in the program in one or more subsequent years.
