Should Columbine High School be demolished? Jeffco school officials ‘exploring’ the idea
Jeffco Public Schools officials are exploring the possibility of asking voters for funds to build a new Columbine High School and tearing down the current building, where 13 people were killed in a mass shooting 20 years ago, according to a letter Thursday by superintendent Jason Glass. Glass – who detailed the possible plan in an open letter to the Jeffco Public Schools community, titled "A New Columbine?" – told Denver7 that the school is "constantly under pressure" from people stopping by the campus, either out of innocent fascination or attempts to enter the building illegally.
