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.

Oppose transgender policies proposed by the Virginia Department of Education

What happened to "my body, my choice", a slogan pushed by the liberal party?  "Choice" implies consent and of free will.  These policies are nothing but propagandas imposing on young children who don't even have a chance of exploring and learning as part of growing up.  They are deprived of the childhood that every children should have.  Remember the phrase "teaching appropriate content at appropriate age"?  How is it that pre-puberty children should even be forced to learn about transgender materials?  Girls don't even know about menstruation & its role in the productive system.  Yet, they are supposed to learn that they may want to have a sex change?  This is how the human race actively participates in choreographing its own demise.
