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 OPPOSE! PLEASE, HAVE MORALS FOR GOD’S SAKE, IF NOT THE CHILDREN!
 

I urge all of you, on behalf of the CHILDREN OF Virginia. This is morally and ethically wrong on MANY accounts and you all know it is! 
One day, EVERY KNEE WILL BOW and give an ACCOUNT for EVERYTHING said and done! 
One of the comments on the board is that they “Support, but also increase mental and and health assessments.” Yes, of course. Support something SO WRONG but also give more funding for the mental health of our youth! Lord, I pray for mercy on those that love you! Our youth is already dealing with mental anguish due to schools being closed. What’s left? Go back to school (insert the date of when exactly is that) to compete against males and share your bathroom with them. 
I and SO MANY will leave these schools, this STATE!!! Get ready! God’s vengeance will leave you like California!
