History

The district formed in 1937 from the consolidation of the Post, Howard, Weaver, Rose, and McConnell school districts. The name was chosen from a nearby stream. Construction on the first school building began in 1937 and was completed in the summer of 1938. Between 1938 and 1941 five additional small school districts – Plainview, Ward, Rockdale, Ericksdahl, and Cobb – merged to form the current Paint Creek district.
