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.

STRONGLY DISAGREE!!
 

I do not agree with this at all. I believe that GOD made us who we are not what sex we want to be. I do not think girls and boys should be in the same bathroom or changing rooms regardless of what sex they think they are that day. What if a guy claiming to be a girl one day goes into the girls changing room and rapes her? What would happen to him? Would it be ok because hes a transgender? NO that is WRONG and a SIN! I believe that GOD should be put back in schools NOT transgender policies. I think it is wrong especially for todays kids that isnt even old enough to know about the opposite sex body parts. Kids DO NOT need transgender polices they need to know and learn about GOD!
