MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) A federal commission on improving school safety is meeting in Montgomery.

The Federal Commission on School Safety meets Tuesday at the Alabama Capitol. The event begins at 1 p.m.

It is the fourth and final listening session by the group formed by President Donald Trump after the deadly shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. Seventeen people were killed.

The group will hold round table discussions with state and local agencies. There will also be a two-hour session for the public to express their views on how to improve school safety.

People who want to speak must register in advance with the commission. Members of the public may also send written comments to safetyed.gov.

Listening sessions were held earlier in Kentucky, Washington D.C. and Wyoming.
