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 pass this evil proposal!

This proposal should not be passed in any public or private schools. Transgendersm introduced at early stage confuses developing minds, it puts the safety of our children at risk. This gives a free entrance by an abuser who pretends to be a transgender to gain a free access to women’s lockers/bathrooms and involve in sexual misconduct or other inappropriate behavior (free pornography). This very proposal puts the safety of one group at greater risk (girls and boys) under the pretense of protecting another group (transgender). Children in elementary,  middle or high school are very much children and should be protected and treated as such. No exception!!!
