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.

Would NEVER Support!!! God creates us as who He wants us to be.

Only God creates us and we cannot change what God has created.  Many times some traumatic experience has confused children and created doubt in their mind.  Truly the evil happening is straight from the devil.  The doubt created is used by the devil to encourage deviance from God's plan for us as His children.  What these children need is help!  They do not need everyone making it easier for the evil to take hold of their lives and create even more confusion for them.  What these children need is to be reminded of the love God has for them and who God created them to be.  They need adults to help them through their confusion, not offer them more confusion to pile on top.  The only way for these children to find true happiness is to be reminded of the fact that they are God's children and He has loved them from before he created them.
