The meeting comes at a time when local school officials have a more heightened concern for security in the wake of last month’s mass shooting at a Florida school.
Seventeen students and staff members died and dozens of others were injured Feb. 14 during the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla.
The Miamisburg meeting is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. in The Commons of the high school, 1860 Belvo Road.
