Guidance Document Change: The Model Policies for the Treatment of Transgender Students in Virginia’s Public Schools guidance document was developed in response to House Bill 145 and Senate Bill 161, enacted by the 2020 Virginia General Assembly, which directed the Virginia Department of Education to develop and make available to each school board model policies concerning the treatment of transgender students in public elementary and secondary schools. These guidelines address common issues regarding transgender students in accordance with evidence-based best practices and include information, guidance, procedures, and standards relating to: compliance with applicable nondiscrimination laws; maintenance of a safe and supportive learning environment free from discrimination and harassment for all students; prevention of and response to bullying and harassment; maintenance of student records; identification of students; protection of student privacy and the confidentiality of sensitive information; enforcement of sex-based dress codes; and student participation in sex-specific school activities, events, and use of school facilities.

I can not believe that our world has come to this. We have to decide if we want to subject our children to russian roulette with a vaccine that is killing many, and now we have to decide if we can afford to quit our jobs to full time homeschool children if we do not believe in the right for boys to share a shower n locker room with our 12 yr old daughter. We have enough issues with teenage pregnancy, and this is going to cause even more cases. How is there not a religious exemption for this, or a way for there to be a room for each sex individually and then a separate area for those who wish and sign up to participate? No, forcing children into this is going to increase teacher/children rape cases, teenage pregnancy, unwanted advances... It is not about trangender. Need to look deeper folks. This is about turning children into little minions like they are trying to do to adults with the whole mask and vaccine stuff right now. Do not take away pur childrens innocence, and VA I am disappointed in you as well as governor Northan for even considering this as an option!!! Pray America!
