Governor Malloy's Panel reviews the Newtown school shooting

The 16-member commission created by Gov. Dannel P. Malloy to review the Newtown school shooting is planning to hear from experts in trauma services and school crisis.

The superintendent of schools and recovery coordinator for the Aurora, Colo. public school system will be among those scheduled to testify before the Sandy Hook Advisory Commission on Friday. Aurora was the site of last summer's theater shooting.

Various Connecticut commissioners are expected to appear, as well as an assistant dean and clinical professor at the University of Southern California School of Social Work and the director of the Psychological Services Center and Trauma Response Team of the doctoral psychology program at Long Island University.

 Malloy's commission is reviewing current policy and making recommendations on school safety, mental health and gun violence prevention.
