Support Model Guidelines for Transgender Students
As a past PTA President and active parent volunteer over the past twenty-three years, and a lifelong Virginian, I am so pleased to see Virginia working to ensure transgender, non-binary, and gender non-conforming student’s rights to fair and protective treatment.
These basic guidelines set a good standard which will help students who may otherwise be at high risk of mistreatment and depression. The simple requirement for all teachers and school staff to respect student preferred pronouns and names, will make a huge positive impact.
Thank you for the care and effort put into these guidelines.
