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.

Why are we EVEN considering this?!?!?!

I’m not sure what is going on but I don’t even know why this would even be an option.  This should never happen !!. It goes against everything the Bible stands for in which our constitution was built upon.  Kids don’t even know what they want for breakfast and you think they can decide to change what God made them?!?  It’s the parents that are twisted to make their kids think different. Which is so sad and perverted.   We need to stand up for what is right!!! Not what the left is trying to push through.
