ISSUE:

About 250 people attended a community meeting last week to discuss a series of fights this fall at Annapolis High School, as well as a Nov. 18 shootout at Westfield Annapolis mall that left a Secret Service agent and a graduate and student of the school wounded.

Parents, teachers, and community leaders agreed to form a coalition to look at possible solutions, including a gun buy-back program and adding self-esteem and anger-management classes to the curriculum.

Schools officials, meanwhile, planned to step up disciplinary efforts, hold an assembly and assign an additional school resource officer to Annapolis High.
