We are asking everyone to contact the Newport News school board members and encourage them to “Align their policies with the revised 2023 Model Policies on Privacy, Dignity, and Respect for All Students and Parents in Virginia’s Public Schools.”
Below we have modeled a response for you, should you desire to copy and paste, and send the school board members your support of these policies. WE HAVE ALSO INCLUDED A LINK WITH THE INFORMATION FOR EACH SCHOOL BOARD MEMBER. Please view this link below, and send your support of these policies to our School Board.

Co-Director, Speak Up! Newport News
Dear (Insert School Board member name),
My name is (insert your name) and I am a resident of Newport News and a member of Speak Up! Newport News. I am reaching out to inform you that the Youngkin administration has released revised policies on transgender issues facing our school system.
These policies provide much needed support to teachers and parents alike in helping our children learn and grow in a safe environment that protects their individual rights. I am asking you to move as soon as possible to vote to align Newport News Public School System policies with the Youngkin Administrations revised “2023 Model Policies on Ensuring Privacy, Dignity, and Respect for All Students and Parents in Virginia’s Public Schools.”
These policies support the parent’s involvement in the education of their children and should be adopted immediately.
Thank you for your time and consideration,
(Insert your name)
