The panel was created this year to address school security and prevention of violent acts in public spaces. It comes after last year's deadly shootings at a Chardon high school and elementary school in Newtown, Conn.
The first hearing is scheduled for 7 p.m. Tuesday. Other hearings focusing on security, school infrastructure and law enforcement response are scheduled for March.
The Ohio House has indicated it's making school safety a priority. The topic is the subject of one of the first bills introduced in the chamber. The legislation is expected to be written based on public input and suggestions.
