Superintendent under investigation, makes six figures

ST. LOUIS (KSDK) - A superintendent's six figure salary has parents outraged. The Fox C-6 School District needs to cut $7 million out of his school budget, but the superintendent is making $260,000.

Dianne Critchlow is on paid administrative leave, accused of cyberbullying two parents and a former custodian.

NewsChannel 5 has been following this story since the cyberbullying scandal broke.

In 2012, Dianne Critchlow was the third highest paid superintendent in the state behind Lee's Summit and Kirkwood.

Monday night, parents packed the school board meeting, demanding accountability from the district. The district approved a budget of $117 million, but school leaders still need to cut back.

Critchlow and three other district employees were placed on paid administrative leave after disparaging online comments posted on a website called Topix, traced back to computers registered to their homes. The district is investigating these claims. Critchlow took part in the district's voluntary leave incentive. Until then, she's still being paid her six figure salary.
