PULASKI COUNTY, Va. (WFXR) — The Pulaski County School Board voted on a number of actions at Tuesday night’s meeting, including protocols for treatment of transgender students and the school district’s reopening plan.
On Tuesday, Aug. 10, the members of the school board voted 4-1 to approve Pulaski County Public Schools’ policy for the treatment of students regardless of gender, gender identity, or gender expression. That policy, which caused debates between Pulaski County residents, was required by the Virginia Department of Education.
