The Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Public Safety Commission is to meet Tuesday to discuss its mission and how it will conduct its investigation. The 16 members are also to hear from the Broward Sheriff's Office about its investigation into the Feb. 14 shooting that left 17 dead and 17 wounded.
