History[edit]

Representatives from Robb School Township, Smith School Township and Center-Robinson Consolidated Schools first met in Poseyville on July 28, 1956 and agreed to reorganize their districts into a single metropolitan school district. It was also agreed than Bethel School Township would be allowed to join the new school district any time they decided to do so.[1] The Metropolitan School District of North Posey County was formally created and named at a meeting in Wadesville on November 2, 1956. Other names suggested at the meeting for the new district were "Quintet" and "North Central".[2] Bethel School Township joined the new metropolitan school district on February 25, 1957.[3] On January 19, 2012 it was announced that the Consolidated School Town of New Harmony and Harmony Township would be annexed by the MSD of North Posey County effective July 1, 2012.[4]
