Unofficial Facebook Page

posted Nov 15, 2016, 12:51 PM by William Brackett

On Thursday, November 10, 2016 it was brought to the attention to Burlington Community School District that on unofficial page, for Burlington Community High School automatically created by Facebook, had a confederate flag as the page’s profile image. During the investigation we found that there was a second unofficial page for BCHS as well. Technology staff as well as High School staff both submitted a complaint to Facebook to have the image removed. Those request were rejected, stating that the pages were unofficial and did not violate Facebook’s community standards.


On Friday, the second page also had the profile picture changed to the same confederate flag image. We also submitted a complaint to Facebook for the second page. We received the same response from Facebook with this complaint as with the first page. The district submitted an appeal to these decisions and have not yet heard a decision.


At this time we request that you link to one of the following official Facebook pages listed below. We will continue to work to get these images changed. BCSD regrets this confusion and are working hard to get this rectified as soon as we can.
