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 this bad policy!
 

This guidance document on transgender students is hare-brained.  The purpose actually appears to be toward more social engineering, and promoting the LGBXYZ agenda.  This policy pits parents against child, if the parent doesn't agree with the  "transgendering" of the student. Parents are the primary educators of their children.  This policy interferes with that God-given right and responsibility.  So--if the child persists in tranny conversion, and his parents try to talk common sense to him, you, The Mighty State, are going to intervene and take the child out of the home?!!  Back off; you have no right to do so.  You will "investigate" the parents and call on the CPS.  What needs investigating, in detail, are the people who wrote this stupid policy.  Surely they will be revealed in all their leftist splendor.

"Male and female He created them."  That is all you need to know; anything else is an aberration, or perversion. Sex of a child is "assigned" at birth.  There are only TWO:  male or female.  This is TRUTH.  One is male or female even down to the cells in the body!  Wake up, for Heaven's sake.  Repeating a lie does not make it true, ever.   These poor kid,s who "feel" like they are the opposite sex, should be referred for mental health counseling.  Johns Hopkins U. and Medical Center have stated that "transgender" is a mental health problem.  It appears that the writers and promoters of this stupidity want to continue to turn American society upside down, to cater to a special interest group, again.  Furthermore, you are ignoring the rights of normal students, male and female, who do not need to have this tranny socialist agenda shoved down their throats.

I am a retired public school teacher.  No way would I ever go back to teach in the public schools today.  You public school teachers and officials must go back to your mandate, to EDUCATE, not INDOCTRINATE.  If you persist with this policy, you can anticipate students being pulled out of the schools in favor of home-schooling or private schools.  You will lose much of your funding, from citizens' tax money.  You might even be fomenting a tax rebellion if you keep on with such policies.
