The Fox Consolidated School District formed in 1948 when the Bowen, Lone Dell, Saline, Seckman, and Soulard one-room school houses consolidated. All students were consolidated into the Fox School, which is the current Fox Middle School. The district was originally a K-8 school district, with high school students having a choice of Crystal City High School and Herculaneum High School. The district became K-12 when Fox High School was established in 1955. The Antonia School District was consolidated into the Fox district in 1970.[4]

In 2013, the district hired Kelly Nash, the daughter in law of the president of the school board, Linda Nash, as its food services director; Kelly Nash was previously an assistant manager at a McDonald's. Due to the criticism, the district enacted an anti-nepotism policy.[5]

In May 2014, a group of parents, who had criticized school-district policies, accused district administrators of posting defamatory comments about the parents on the Topix public forum. The group of parents subpoenaed Topix to obtain the poster's IP addresses and then filed court orders with AT&T and Charter Communications to obtain the identities associated with the IP addresses.[6] In June 2014, the parents filed a libel suit against district officials.[7] The district revealed the names of the accused administrators, who were placed on administrative leave.[8] Superintendent Dianne Critchlow was one of the individuals put on leave, and the district began a search for a new superintendent.[9] The school board accepted Critchlow's resignation effective October 31, 2014, hired an interim superintendent, and fired Critchlow's husband.[10]
