2569Re: Ohio House Bill 178
- Mar 23, 2014House Bill 178 sounds great. We can at least treat the lockdown drill as an enhanced lockdown drill and have the teachers and students practice barricading so that all the drills are related to ALICE.This bill is a lot better than HB8 that allows teachers/school employees to carry guns in the school if approved by the board of education.They have no idea what training will be required but they think they will just make you have a CCL. That training is a joke and a smack in the face of police officers and the training that they do everyday for the safety of our students.I told them how they should be talking about providing teachers/students with options other than sitting in a corner and waiting for police and having teachers carry a gun doesn't need to be one of them.I was in Columbus on Wednesday and spoke to my Senators and Representatives against HB8.I will call them about supporting HB178.Thank you.Jason SchererField Local SchoolsAlice Trained Teacher

He is the link to HB 178 as passed by the House. In the original bill we asked for 4 safety drills a year and five fire drills. That was changed to read six fire drills and three safety drills. In addition to the three safety drills the schools are required, under the new bill, to perform a tabletop exercise and one of the three “safety” drills is required to be a lockdown only drill.
So far it looks like we ended up with tow drills a year that go along with our ALICE training but I think we can make it work. It’s still better than what we had.
Thanks for everyone’s help. Now we need to start pushing the Senators.
What does HB178 contain?

I just wanted everyone to know that I received word on Thursday that HB 178, the School Safety bill we’ve been pushing for finally passed the house 98-0. The bill now moves to the Senate.
The current bill is watered down some from what we originally wanted but it’s a step in the right direction.
