RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Governor McDonnell is set to meet with UVA's president, John Casteen, Tuesday.

Casteen says he is disturbed at the gaps in Virginia law when it comes to letting schools know about students and their past encounters with police. Now, that lack of notification is now under some intense scrutiny.

Casteen and Governor McDonnell will talk about whether or not schools should have arrest records of its students.

Police say UVA senior and lacrosse player George Huguely is responsible for the death of fellow senior Yeardley Love, but Casteen says UVA did not know about Huguely's past run-ins with police.

 Students are required under UVA's school policy to report arrests, but if they don't, there's not standard in place for Virginia Police agencies to let colleges know.  

The meeting will start at 11:30 Tuesday morning.
