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 oppose!

Strongly oppose! A person’s sex is determined physically at birth, along with those DNA. Transgender identity issues is a psychological problem, not a physical mistake and should be dealt with by a psychiatrist! The Lord didn’t make a mistake when He determined the sex of baby while in their mother’s womb. It should be no surprise people have this mindset on transgender issues, cause the Lord did say, “in the last days people would would have a reprobate minds”. They will call what is evil good and what is good evil. The consequence of this issue will not only affect children in schools but eventually in every area of our lives to an extent we have never known. Please don’t allow this to happen!!
