Former District 200 Superintendent Gary Catalani Resigns From Arizona Job

Catalani quits in Arizona - with no worries about health care coverage.

Former District 200 superintendent Dr. Gary Catalani has quit his new superintendent job at the Scottsdale, Arizona school district, as reported by Arizona Central and several correspondents in Scottsdale.  Catalani's Arizona contract had two years remaining, and required him to give 90 days notice of resignation, which apparently he did not do, citing "health and family reasons."  Catalani turned 60 in January of this year.  If he has a personal health problem, we certainly wish him the best, but he will be well provided for, as his prior contract with District 200 (the subject of my FOIA lawsuit) mandates that District 200 taxpayers continue to pay directly for his and his wife's health insurance, with no deductibles or co-pays, through the year 2022, in addition to paying (via the State of Illinois) for his pension, one of the highest in the state of Illinois.
