Kevin Gable is one parent who attended the meeting who said he's hopeful this meeting will spark a change.

"I hope the school board and the district and the parents also are getting a clear picture of what's actually going on so that we can actually get a clear set of solutions that maybe able to provide some safety and security for our children," Gable said.

Killeen ISD's Superintendent Dr. John Craft said staff members are doing their best to address each issue individually, and they're also working to come up with new programs to combat the violence at schools.
