JEFFERSON COUNTY, MO. (KTVI) - The Fox School District Superintendent is on the run from the You Paid For It Team's questions about Nepotism.  Dianne Critchlow uses Arnold Police to get away. It's the first time we've had police tell us what we can and can't ask.

Investigator Elliott Davis went to question her in the wake of an uproar at the District over the hiring of the School Board President's Daughter in Law to a High Paying District job, even though she only had a High School Diploma and managed a fast food restaurant.

Our Investigation at the Fox District led to a startling discovery at most of the other St. Louis area school districts; almost all of them have a Nepotism policy that makes it easy to hire relatives of school board members and top administrators.

But I did discovered one area school district that's going against the grain.

The Mehlville School District has a policy that gets tough on Nepotism, it's school Board President says he wants to be as transparent as possible.

My confrontation at Fox ended when an Arnold Police Officer told me the superintendent wanted me to leave the building.
