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.

So much evil within our country. To think that we would allow a child to decide that they should choose their sexual orientation and then allow them to enter into locker rooms with opposite sex also teachers of the opposite sex.. we are asking for trouble. What makes it ok for a teacher, for example a male to be in a locker room with a child(ren) that are female that identify as male.. does the teacher become a sex offender???? This is ridiculous.. our tax dollars are being spent on the wrong things.
