President Donald Trump will hold a White House round table this afternoon to discuss a new school safety report following the Parkland school shooting.

Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi will attend, as will Andy Pollack and Max Schacter, two fathers of victims of the February shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, according to the White House.

The 177-page report, released Tuesday, includes 93 recommendations intended to address school safety after 17 people were killed at the South Florida high school by a classmate.

"Each of us has an important role to play in keeping our students safe while at school," said Chair of the Federal Commission on School Safety and U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos. "Through the Commission's work, it has become even clearer there is no single policy that will make our schools safer. What will work for schools in Montana will be different than what will work for schools in Manhattan."

The event is scheduled for 2:15 p.m.
