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.

New rules for Virginia schools

Nobody want these children’s to be bullied or to suffer in any way but why is so important to make everybody else suffer instead??  You and I both know the middle school/high school boys are going to put on skirts or whatever and go into the girls bathrooms just to create chaos.  They can’t be questioned you say (according to the new rules).  I come from a genetics background and know of all the variants that can occur that we also don’t know all the reason/causes this happens.  They exist all around us.  We’ve taught our children to love and be good to everyone because God loves everyone and has placed all people here for us to live with and be kind to.  We did not teach them that others would try to press an agenda on them so as to not allow them privacy they may want while they’re are in school. 

If a person presents as a girl/boy you treat them like a girl/boy.  They have entered the REAL world you have not entered theirs.  I’d think those poor children suffering would understand that above everybody.  They want to be normal ... or what they perceive as normal.  Men transitioning to women and taking over sports and venues because of the natural enhancement that comes with a male Y doesn’t sound fair to me.  The only fair way to address this is male sports, female sports, and all the rest in a group category of male to female and female to male.  That way all competition will be fair and equal which is what everyone wants.  The new rule makers are not seeing the forest for the trees. 

Maybe they should spend their time making “rules” for how parents should raise their children...or make it simple...bring God back into the schools instead of communists.  You all are reaping what you have sown.
