Exceptional Children's Services



The mission of Bladen County Public Schools' Exceptional Children's Program (EC) is to provide a quality educational experience to students with disabilities by implementing individualized, research-based assessments, and specialized instruction as we prepare them to become productive, responsible members of their community.
The Bladen County Board of Education does not discriminate on the basis of race, creed, national origin, sex, age, or handicapping condition in its policies.
