The 2013-14 school year will be his last year.

"This is a special year at Columbine High School as we celebrate the 40 Year Anniversary. The Columbine School Community is truly special and I have been blessed to have spent the past 34 years at CHS. I want to take this opportunity to inform you that I have decided to retire after this school year. It has been my privilege to lead this wonderful school through the best and worst of times.

The support of our families and the Columbine community has meant the world to me; I have been profoundly honored and humbled to be a part of the Columbine family. I can never thank you enough for the continued support that you have given me over the past four decades as a teacher, coach, assistant principal and the past 18 years as principal.

It has given me great pleasure to see many of my former students’ children attending and graduating from Columbine High School. I felt it might be time to retire before a student informs me that I taught their grandparents. Thank you for 18 memorable years as principal of this extraordinary school. I know that I will shed a lot of tears, tears of joy and tears of sadness; and I know that the memories of my time at Columbine will last for a lifetime. I am eternally grateful. Wherever my next journey in life takes me, my heart will always be with Columbine.

“You’re A Columbine Rebel for Life and No One Can Ever Take That Away From You”
We Are Columbine!

Sincerely,

Frank DeAngelis
Principal"

I give him credit for hanging in there. Most would have immediately applied for a disability pension due to stress.

Good for him. Smile I hope that he'll enjoy his retirement in peace. He's been a part of this school for a very long time, so it'll be quite interesting to see if anything will change in the community and school after his retirement. Mr D certainly deserves some credit for sticking with this school through the worst of times. I truly believe that he, in his own fashion, embraced the school and did his best to 'make it work'.

Fair play to the man, he stuck around when many would have run for the hills and never looked back. He really honored his word and hung in there until everyone involved had graduated, and then some. I wish him all the best in the next season of his life.

I definitely give this man serious props. He will always have my full respect. With everything Frank DeAngelis has been through over the years, he deserves a golden award.

What's your evidence for this?

Well gee....how about the fact that 13 people died under his watch? Isn't that enough evidence already?

Or is that not enough?

Even Brooks says he was scum, and I'm positive that Eric and dylan didn't think highly of him either.

No, that's not enough evidence. Many workplaces have been subject to violent incidents. Did the superintendent of the federal building in Oklahoma City not care about the well-being of his employees? What about the manager of the WTC? Caring is not bullet-proof or bomb-proof.

Where does Brooks Brown say he was scum? The fact that Eric and Dylan didn't think highly of him doesn't mean much to me as an indicator of DeAngelis's character, because they also wanted to commit homicide against all of the children in the school.

One reason I did not like him is that he said there was nothing wrong with Columbine. Think he did not learn anything. And I did not understand that he is the principal for all those years...

The fact that a shooting took place at the school is evidence enough. Pleased students don't shoot up their school. There's a reason why Eric and Dylan picked their school to shoot up.

Case closed.

Just because every single student at the school wasn't happy all the time doesn't mean that Frank DeAngelis didn't care about the students' welfare.

By your logic, the governor of Oklahoma doesn't care about his constituents because Timothy McVeigh was unhappy.

The mayor of Samson, Alabama doesn't care about his residents because someone went on a rampage there in 2009.

Obviously, this is an absurd line of logic. No governor, or mayor, or principal, can protect all his people all the time from every psycho who shows up. Doesn't mean he doesn't care.
