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.

PURE EVIL! Transgender school policy.

Parents are relinquishing their rights to parent while also allowing the left to dictate that you have the right to doctor assisted murder.  Which is it far left...abortion (right to choose) or parenting?  As for me and my household we will serve the Lord and raise our children to honor life and those that are born with difficulty.  Parents think they have the right to choose their child’s gender kindergartener wants to be a different gender.  Only the selfish parent does.  But we all have to live with their inability to parent by submitting to cultural abuse.  Forget it!  You will lose the right to teach ( not that you are teaching anything of truth anymore). The Zinn facts are non facts.  Look into it!  You are adding stupid to the qualifications of being a teacher.  It isn’t their right to tell me how to parent.  I will no longer support the school system.  I will fight my taxes going to schools.
