Ottawa school superintendent resigns

By CRYSTAL HERBER, Herald Staff Writer

The top official for the Ottawa school district has resigned.

Dean Katt, superintendent of Ottawa schools, resigned Friday morning, effective immediately. The Ottawa school board voted 5-1 to accept Katt’s resignation at a special meeting Friday morning.

Katt, who was hired in 2006, is expected to be retained by the district as a consultant from Friday until Oct. 31. Brian Kraus, assistant superintendent, was approved by the board to take over immediately as interim superintendent until Katt’s replacement can be hired.
