Two not-so-new principals were formally approved by the Santa Barbara school board on Tuesday. Frann Wageneck had been a principal-in-waiting at Alta Vista/La Cuesta as outgoing principal Kathy Abney stayed on salary-free to ease the transition. Vanesha Davis had only been assistant principal for a couple weeks when Harding principal Nuh Kimbwala was removed for an incident that precipitated notification of Child Welfare Services and the police. (No charges were filed.) Davis immediately took over in an interim capacity, but the job is now hers.
