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 Do Not Support This - Gender Dysphoria is a disorder

Can we get back to the basic and remove all the extra stuff. Teach them how to read and write. Master that and then talk to me about all this other stuff. The TRUTH is gender dysphoria is a disorder that we no longer want to acknowledge or the other FACT that according to Pediatrics, the majority of children identify with their assigned sex at birth as adults. Let's ignore the facts and go with feelings.  We acknowledge my feelings that I totally disagree with this.
