Paint Creek Independent School District is a public school district based in the community of Paint Creek in unincorporated Haskell County, Texas (USA). Its headquarters are along Farm to Market Road 600.[1] Most of the district is in Haskell County, and a small portion of the district extends into Jones County. Paint Creek ISD has one school that serves students in grades pre-kindergarten through twelve.


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.[2]
