WADSWORTH: The city school district and police will host a meeting about school safety at 6 p.m. March 5 in the James R. McIlvaine Performing Arts Center at Wadsworth High School, 625 Broad St.

The meeting will include a general overview of the safety practices and preventive educational programs in place in the local schools and provide an opportunity for those in attendance to ask questions and share thoughts and ideas.

The meeting comes as schools throughout the Akron area are being hit with threats of violence following a mass shooting last week at a school in Florida.
