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.

Leave parenting to parents

This bill is ludicrous saying that teachers can talk to students with out telling the parents anything letting the school have anything to do with how a child that was not born from them is raised that is none of there business  that is between the parent an child also for this bill to say that anyone entering a bathroom will not be questioned or letting boys use girls rooms or girls using boys rooms is absolutely wrong an over stepping the governor an schools place these are children no one wants a 6 ' hairy knuckle adams apple having bethany going in to the bathroom behind there daughter  no one wants that or having to put the children them self's through  the embarrassment and or harrassment they will get from other students an it will happen almost garunted this is the most ridiculously made bill I have ever read my closing statement is this LEAVE PARENTING TO THE PARENTS  governments governors have no place in family affairs
