Bellefontaine School Board learns about A.L.I.C.E.; Antram set to retire (Audio & video included)

The Bellefontaine City School Board learned about an active shooter training program Monday night.

Principals Vinnie Spirko and Matt Comstock along with Bellefontaine Police Chief Brandon Standley were present to speak about A.L.I.C.E., which stands for Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter, and Evacuate. Alert brings the situation to the attention of others in the building and the police. Lockdown is the act of barricading yourself from harm. Inform is keeping information moving to inform others of what is going on and the location of the shooter. Counter is fighting back when needed to survive. Finally, evacuate means to leave the building and get to safety. The five steps do not have to be in that order, but used when needed in an active shooter situation.

The board also voted on the retirement of high school band director Joe Antram. Mr. Antram has been in education for 35 years with 29 years of service with Bellefontaine.

Superintendent Beth Harman discusses Antram's retirement and A.L.I.C.E.

Josh Clifton and Amber Jones were recognized as December Students of the Month.

During the board’s annual organizational meeting, Joan Haushalter was re-elected board president and Todd Heydinger was re-elected board vice president.

The Bellefontaine City School Board will meet again on January 28th at 6:30 pm.
