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.

It is hard to believe that a Governor/Doctor spent all those years studying medicine and does not recognize the implication of this overt indoctrination.   

I spent many years in the military with transgenders and gay, as the govenrment used the military as an opportunity for experimentation.   I defended then and still defend the ability for them to freely participate like everyone else, but reject that being gay or transgender has anything to do with their qualification/s. 

I have participated in Training and Development as a career for 50 years; in the federal goverment, State Government, Business and Industry, and the local school system.  This blatent indoctrination will contribute nothing to developing a ready work force or a stronger nation. 

I am opposed to the government forcing me to act or not act in a certain way (allowing that it does not infringe upon other people's God-given, constitutional rights), particularly when they restrict my access to information.  

Ignoring physical differences and particularly the impact it will have on children is more than egregious.
