Orange Unified Schools DIGEST
VILLA PARK H.S. PRINCIPAL
OUT FOR BACK SURGERY
Villa Park H.S. Principal Dr. David Steinle began a medical leave last week just months after being appointed to the principal post in the wake of the upheaval of former principal Ben Rich’s reassignment to Richland H.S. as “Principal on Special Assignment”.
Credible community sources report that Steinle is undergoing treatment for three degenerative disks in his back that were a result of an old high school injury and is expected to be gone for 4-6 weeks. Villa Park H.S. Vice-Principal Ed Howard was assigned as Acting Principal. Howard’s Vice Principal position is being filled by retired Linda Vista Principal Jim Millen as Acting Vice Principal.
By all accounts, Steinle had led the high school back to calm after the disruptive start of the school year. Steinle has proven to be an able and good administrator and the Villa Park H.S. community has wished him well for a speedy recovery as they look forward to his return.
