Frank DeAngelis was principal of Columbine High School 1999 when it became the site of the deadliest school shooting in the United States up to that time. He'll visit Hillview Middle School on Monday, Jan. 14, for a conversation about violence in schools.
It's been nearly 20 years since two students at the Littleton, Colorado, high school opened fire, killing 13 and wounding more than 20. Since then, there have been scores of violent incidents at schools across the country, including a mass shooting at Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, last year.
