    VIRGINIA BEACH, Virginia (WTKR) — More than a hundred students and parents spoke before the Virginia Beach City Public Schools board Tuesday night about the state’s model policy regarding transgender students in Tuesday night’s school board meeting.

Dozens of parents and students voiced their concerns and support for the state’s model policy impacting transgender genders.

Board member Jessica Owens introduced a resolution for Virginia Beach Schools to commit to eliminating discrimination against LGBTQ+ students in school. It goes against Governor Glenn Youngkin’s policy on transgender students in schools.

A couple of school board members made a motion to defer the conversation until the model policy is released by the state’s superintendent.

It’s important to note, the state’s model policy will not become final until the review is complete. A final version would then need to be approved by the state superintendent.
