    Newtown School Panel Working on Final Details of Report

    The chairman of a panel Connecticut Gov. Dannel Malloy created by to recommend public safety changes in the wake of the Newtown school shooting says the group hopes to have final recommendations approved by next month.

    The Sandy Hook Advisory Commission was meeting on Friday to review some outstanding issues regarding school design, mental health care and emergency response. The panel also planned to discuss whether their report should include photos of the victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting.

    Twenty first-graders and six educators were killed at the school in 2012 by a gunman who also killed his mother and later committed suicide.

    Commission chairman Scott Jackson, the mayor of Hamden, said they are hoping their report leads to changes beyond the state borders.
