The Hartney School District was established formally in 1884 in the village of Hartney. It became Hartney Consolidated School No. 2389 in July 1960 when it was consolidated with several rural schools in the surrounding area: Whitewater School No. 346, Swaffham School No. 347, Forbes School No. 966, and Cavell School No. 1840. It became part of the Souris Valley School Division in 1968.

A bell in front of the Hartney Town Hall was originally mounted in 1904 on the Hartney Public School building.
