The meeting will be at 6:30 at Irvine High School Theater, 4321 Walnut Ave.

Choi will provide an introduction, and Irvine Unified School District Superintendent Terry Walker and Tustin Unified School District Superintendent Gregory Franklin will speak on safety plans and precautions at their respective schools.

Irvine Police Chief Dave Maggard will provide an overview of the safety department's equipment, training and special assignments, with other specifics explained by police Lt. Dave Klug.

The school attack in the rural Connecticut town of Newtown on Friday killed 20 children – ages 6 and 7 – as well as six staff members and the shooter's mother. The shooter then turned a gun on himself, authorities said.
