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.

Do not support

I disagree with this policy. I feel it is a infringement on the rights of Parents.  We have authority over our children until they are 18. I do not want my son to see a naked female that identify as male. I do not want a male that identify as female expose himself either. I firmly believe that if they want to be accepted then have a transgender rooms locker room an bathroom. If our beliefs are different then we are the bad ones?  Bullying because we don't approve of a lifestyle? No! It can be respected but it should not be forced. That is where the problems come from. Its science that male an female are different its a choice to want to be different not science.
