Hundreds of students protesting gun violence march to the Minnesota State Capitol on Wednesday, March 7, 2018, in St. Paul, Minn. St. Paul police estimated 2,000 students from around the metro area marched to the Capitol.

One thing is certain after the Feb. 14 school shooting in Florida: Our nation's students want to be heard.

All over the country, students are calling for change and new policies.

The Tribune-Review/Valley News Dispatch is hosting a one-of-a-kind event to give area high school students a safe and open forum to talk about school safety.

The School Safety Student Panel will take place at 7 p.m. March 19 in the Forum Theatre at Penn State New Kensington.

The Trib has invited students from all school districts in the Alle-Kiski Valley to gather and discuss their ideas and concerns about issues such as gun violence and arming teachers.

Students are welcome to participate with their parents. Teachers and school administrators also are welcome, but the event is closed to the general public.

Registration is encouraged but not required. To register, send an email to vndcity@tribweb.com. The program is free.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
