Media Statement from Supt. Dr. Otha Belcher Jr.

November 2, 2021

Last night, a bomb threat circulated on social medi allegedly targeting Cleveland Central High School and the Career Development and Technology Center. I contacted Cleveland Police Chief Bingham and he immediatley sent police officers to sweep and secure both locations. We have recieved the all clear to operate our normal schedule today. So, both locations are open for school. Our citizens are vigilant and notified our school administrators about the threat. I thank them for alerting us to the proposed threat. I also would like to thank our administators for their quick response in alerting me and my team. And a special thank you to Chief Bingham and the Cleveland Police Department for their rapid responses in making sure that there wasn't a threat to our school campuses.
