I fully support the draft guidance provided by the VDOE. As a dance teacher, I have the privilege of working with students from multiple school systems including Fairfax County, Loudon County, Frederick County and Winchester public schools. A child's experience in the education system can be both positively and negatively transformative. The above guidance is one that will set ALL students up for success, specifically LGBTQ+ students. EVERY CHILD is worthy of such success. This guidance will allow schools the opportunity to be properly equipped with policies and procedures needed to provide a safe and inclusive educational experience for EVERY student.
