The citizens of tambon Chaiyakhram then asked to be included in the new district as well, which was done on 1 September of the same year. On 16 November 1971 it was promoted to full district status. The fourth tambon, Pak Prak, was created on 14 July 1978 from tambon Don Sak and Chaiyakhram.Administrative divisionsThe Don Sak District is subdivided into four sub-districts, which are further subdivided into 40 villages .
