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.

Strongly AGAINST!

This is ridiculous! Everyone is afraid to speak up for what is right. You are either a boy or a girl. You can’t be both, undecided or change what you were born with. This world is twisted and parents nowadays are afraid of hurting their kids feelings by not letting them do or “be” what they want. I homeschool and would NEVER let my children be exposed to this garbage! Public schools even considering this junk makes my reasoning for homeschool even stronger!
