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.

Keep Your Social Agendas Out of Schools (AND COLLEGES) and Away From our Children!
COL(Ret) Wally Bunyea said what needed to be said most eloquently below.  Unapologetically, I'm not quite so eloquent.  All teachers unions need to be eliminated and many of our school board members need to be fired for pushing their social agendas onto our children of all ages.  This includes our Marxist professors in our American colleges.  STOP THE INDOCTRINATION NOW!  I don't shove my belief systems or heterosexuality down your your throats.  How DARE you think you can do so to OUR children!  They are NOT your children to mold and influence about sexual matters.  Ridiculous how obviously wrong this is.  Leave your personal sexual preferences and agendas where they belong:  In your personal life.  Stop trying SO HARD to convince the world your belief system is "normal" and HAS TO BE everyone's belief system.  Perhaps you need to look inward to see why it's so important you need our impressionable children's/college-aged adults' approval.  Next thing you know, pedophilia will be legalized.  One deviation leads to one more, then one more.  Where does it end?   STOP THE MADNESS NOW!   Parents have finally opened their eyes and WE ARE ONTO YOU!  LEAVE OUR CHILDREN ALONE!

Follow the science.

Follow the science.  There are two sexes, male and female, as identified by XY and XX chromosomes.

Don't confuse helpless children by wielding your power to promote gender dysphoria.  That is child abuse. 

Each sex deserves their own changing and rest room facilities.  So, don't violate their privacy rights.  That should be a crime.

In addition, girls and young women deserve their own sports programs.  They shouldn't have to compete with biological males which puts them at an unfair disadvantage.

Finally, do not demand that school employees lie about the sex of anyone.  That is a violation of First Amendment rights, and does a disservice to everyone including the person you want to help. 

The fact that I have to remind you of these basic truths, should embarrass you.
