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.

Vehemently oppose this outrageous guidance.

This guidance is not only outrageous, but sickening.

Basically any boy or other gender can walk into a girls bathroom or locker room at any time according to this. It does not matter if the girl is undressed at all. Privacy isn't allowed anymore, anywhere. Girls can go topless in activities where boys can such as swimming. There is absolutely NO respect for the girls. Their rights don't matter according to this guidance. And we think rape and sex trafficking are bad now. Just wait. 
I have a four year old granddaughter and the thought of her going to school under these circumstances makes me nauseous. 
What this is attempting to do is to make our society complete amoral, perverted and twisted. It's trying to take God and parental rights out of everything.
