AbstractThis qualitative case study explores how a middle class school district navigated serving a rapidly increasing number of homeless families. The authors analyze the prioritization of the issue by district leaders, the process of designing and implementing policy, and the difficulty of translating policy to the school site level. In particular, we explore how districts grapple with serving youth and families who attempt to remain invisible as a result of fear and social shame.
