The tragic mass shooting that happened in a Florida high school has parents across the country demanding more be done to keep our kids safe.

Now, school districts and law enforcement in Maryland are looking at what can be done. The Baltimore County public school system is hosting a school safety and discipline community meeting Wednesday night.

Tuesday night, Howard County Public School officials met with the community to discuss the same topic, answering parents questions and coming up with solutions not only on how to protect students, but also students with disabilities.

Officials reassured parents that both Howard and Baltimore County Schools already have safety plans in place for a variety of emergencies, but they wanted to come together to ease parents minds, 

"All parents are concerned not only in our state but throughout the country, these horrific incidents have shaken us to all to the core, so I think this is a great great opportunity for the entire community to come together to have a conversation," said Ed Clarke, the Executive Director for Maryland Center for School Safety. 

Wednesday night parents are invited to come out to the Baltimore County Public School headquarters at 7 p.m. to listen and speak with school safety officials.
