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.

Treatment of Transgender

Transgender is a mental disorder and these people should be seeking professional help. So instead of helping them you want to make sure that a girl/women can never win another event (the entire purpose of having a boy team and girl team is to give girls a chance to win as science dictates that boys are physically stronger and faster than girls). Also you are now going to make it unsafe for girls in locker rooms and showers, by letting a boy who can say any day that he fells like a girl. you are putting girls at risk and are taking the chance of ruining a young girls life by ensuring the chance that they will be abused. This madness has to stop. I bet you don't let boys in the same bath or shower as your daughter. lets put your daughter in the boys locker room first, then if that works out, lets talk. oh that's right, your daughter will be in private protected school!....get the mental kids help and stop trying to attack young girls. You are either born with a X or a Y chromosomes, that is the science. Also try to hide from a parent and then turn them in to social services for abuse if they don't think that there own kid is a biological boy or girl. You should be put in jail for even suggesting this. You do not parent my kids. teach them math, reading, and the real HISTORY! Leave the rest to parents, its their kids, not yours! If you want to mess your kids up then that's fine, but leave mine the hell alone.
