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.

Guidance for transgenders in school

As a concerned law bidding citizen of this great nation and virginia, I am appalled that we have what should be moral, law bidding individuals in governmental offices supporting something so immoral as transgenders. This goes completely against the laws of nature that should be protected the same as man made laws. The gender is established in every living being at birth. It shouldn't be decided by some sick minded person. That's is exactly what is happening. As leaders of the people you need to develope education and rehabilitation centers just like those on drugs or alcohol and oppose such immoral behaviors. Continuing on this path of immorality is going to destroy families, our culture and our nation. You have a responsibility to do what's right. I will be praying that you do.
