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.

I Oppose Gender Confusion

I strongly oppose the LGBTQ and gender confusion agenda. We must follow the biology and if you are born a boy then that is who you are. If you are born a girl then you are a girl. No need to confuse the children, they have enough issues growing up in this difficult world as it is. The parents and the community need to be be encouraging them to be the best they can be following the gender they were born as. It is clear suicide for children confused on their gender is much higher than children who are not confused. We want to set up the next generation of Americans for success where they excel in intelligence, compassion, ethics, and determination. This LGBTQ push is counterintuitive to those objectives.
