School district reponds to dating site account

It has been brought to our attention that an account using Bladen County Schools’ email domain has been created on the online website.

We are able to verify that the domain does belong to Bladen County Schools. However, this is not an indication that an actual employee of the school system created the account. Nor does it indicate that any online activity took place.

The Bladen County Schools network has filtering in place to detect access attempts from unauthorized sites and block those attempts. We will continue to monitor our filtering system and online activity and take appropriate action where necessary.
