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
 

We desire equal rights for all of humanity. Children are still under the supervision of their parents.

Stay our of our families. Stay our of our choice of religion. Stop trying to make everyone universal. Each child is unique. Are you also going to pass laws for helping children who want to play a violin? Of course not.

Allow local communities to meet the needs of it's people.

This needs to be a case by case situation. Allow provisions for single bathroom and facilities. You can't put everyone into a pigeon hole. 

This supports trans-humanism. Should we add AI to this bill, too?

I appreciate that a few individuals may have a transgender consideration; however, you are now putting everyone else at risk and in embarrassing situations by assuming that we have to protect this small percentage. What about all the children who have not made this election? What about their privacy? What about their rights?

What about the cost?

Children up thru around 14/15 of age go back and forth with many different ideas and insecurities. It is not up to the state to encourage and support the personal choices of an individual. Personal choices require personal responsibility.

You know like: EVERYONE NEEDS TO WEAR A MASK AND HOME SCHOOL AND STAY ON HOME ARREST UNTIL WE THE GOV'T DECIDE WHAT'S BEST.

Remember "WE THE PEOPLE" are your employers. We actually pay your salaries and give you the opportunity to serve with liberty and justice for ALL.
