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.

Commenter: Reverse Discrimination!

You get what you vote for Virginia! now, your child will be disciplined for saying wrong pronoun

Most of us have a hard time remembering names... and now you want our children to remember what pronoun a child wants to be called ( that can change from day to day)? Or they will be reprimanded????  This is to be taught in schools???? and you worry about keeping your school accredidation? VA Schools will all be discredited for this foolishness! 

Will be interesting to see the stats of children and teachers who leave the VA public school system! and to see the decline of people moving to VA due to this reverse discrimination policy.  No one is going to move to a state with a school system that tries to over ride parental rights. 

What happens to Biological Male and Biological Female rights? They just get thrown under the school bus? and exchanged for the opposite biological human to be exposed, in front of biological called children,  in the locker room (and vice versa)! 

Of course, VDOE is just following what the irrational, ignorant politicians in our General Assembly told them to do.  No one is doing a reality check and thinking of consequences of the rights of BIOLOGICAL male and female rights and PARENT rights. They are just pushing a "woke" agenda, to please .4% of the population.  Pure insanity!
