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.

No Such Thing As Transvestite Children

If schools can ban the wearing of hats indoors they can also ban dressing as the opposite sex.

As children we would all have loved for every school day to be Halloween. Thankfully we had responsible parents and educators that prepared us for the real world and how to dress properly in public.

The simple fact that kids want to dress as crazy as possible isn't surprising. THEY'RE KIDS!

What's surprising is that any serious educator would encourage this. No child is truly a transvestite. They don't need mental help. Their parents do for allowing their children to act this way.
