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.

 I am 100% against teaching students of any age and in any school that males and females are not different sexes to be determined at birth by the child being born with either a penis or a vagina. This should not be taught during school but at home by their parents however they feel as to rather they consider being transgender as normal and should be examined further or like my family that it is not normal and believe male's are males and females are females period. No muti-sex public restrooms, no letting males who identify as female take gym classes or other classes where clothes will be removed. I will never understand how this was ever even seriously taken as an issue especially to be a part of teaching at school. So, in today's society this is acceptable in todays schools but Prayer, teaching and reading the Bible is prohibited, you can no longer decorate your classrooms for Christmas or even wish others a Merry Christmas as it is now considered politically incorrect, which always seems to be listened to while Christians and our beliefs and traditions are no longer allowed in todays society and schools and you can surely tell by the wicked ways of today. So a great big no on this policy.
