HEART Information

The McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act of 1987 is a United States federal law written as a legislative response to homelessness. It has been reauthorized several times and it was recently amended by the Every Student Succeeds Act of 2015. These very important federal laws protect the educational rights of students (PreK-12th grade) who have lost housing and are experiencing homelessness. The goal is to remove barriers that might prevent students experiencing homelessness from enrolling, attending, and succeeding in school.
