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.

Do NOT Support this EVER

This violates God's Natural and Divine law.  It is immoral.  It HARMS those individuals who are suffering from this dementia.  This is a psychological problem that requires compassion but not JUMPING INTO BED with someone having delusional thoughts.  It's the equivalent of "going along" with someone thinking they are Napoleon Bonaparte.  There are only TWO GENDERS.  Stop your insanity.  Marxist school board members bought by wealthy liberal donors are killing our education and severely harming our children.  You ought to be VERY ASHAMED of yourselves for even bringing this up.  I DO NOT SUPPORT THIS NOR WILL I EVER SUPPORT THIS.  I WILL PROTEST WITH EVERY FIBER OF MY BODY THIS INSANITY AND IMMORALITY.    NO! NO! NO! NO!
