Hanover School Leaders To Discuss Adopting Transgender Bathroom Policy
This proposal would allow students to use the bathroom and locker room that matches their gender identity.

All school districts in Virginia are required to have policies in place for transgender students.
Hanover has refused to do that for more than a year and was sued by the ACLU.
Once all the needed information is collected, the school’s principal will provide a written summary of the request and send it to the school board.
The board will begin discussing it all starting at seven this evening.
Another Hot & Humid Day!

Today will be mostly to partly sunny with highs in the mid-90s.
