Connelly Paid $45,200 for 2 months work?

Amended tax return after inquiries exposes what (not so) Exceptional SC was hiding?

#3. Chad Connelly – GETS PAID $45,200 – for 2 months work?:   Well, maybe this explains why they did not file the tax return timely.  Perhaps they were trying to figure out a way not to disclose how much they were paying Chad Connelly.  As you recall the original draft they provided us (with the names of their donors – DATA BREACH???) did not list Connelly’s compensation as required by law.  Well … after our repeated requests … and reminders about the law … his compensation was disclosed.

$45,200 in calendar year 2017 (but he was hired November 2nd, 2017?)

But that $45,200 is not for 12 months … it is just for the calendar year 2017.  And when was it announced that Chad Connelly had been hired?  NOVEMBER 2, 2017.

$45,200 for 2 months work??? 

Doing it for the kids right?

At $45,200 for two months … $22,600 a month … that equates to:

$271,200 / year!!!

And don’t forget about the CPA, Stephen Kirkland … Chad’s fellow board member at Palmetto Family Council …  who helped him get this “job”.

June Fundraising – It’s Getting Worse!!!

Published

on

The SC Department Of Revenue has responded to a FOIA request with the fundraising update for the month of June. (not so) Exceptional SC & #FireChadConnelly raised only $64,626.82 in the month of June.

Friends … as we have been predicting and warning everyone … things ARE NOT looking good for the fall semester. The school is starting in about a month … and (not so) Exceptional SC raised $704,293.76 SINCE JANUARY, and as you can tell, things are getting WORSE!!! While our neighbors in GA with a similar income tax credit program raised $81.8 MILLION by January 7th – YES – in ONLY 7 DAYS!!!

How is (not so) Exceptional SC planning on funding the scholarships in the fall with almost non-existent fundraising? You deserve to know … you deserve the opportunity to plan ahead … you deserve answers!

Call / email and ask: administrator@exceptionalsc.org, 803-602-4398 (administrator), Chad Connelly – Exceptional SC Executive Director – 803-924-4596, chad@exceptionalSC.org, Tom Persons – Exceptional SC Board Chair – 803-261-0348, tepsr@att.net   tep@sctech.org

Coming: Charleston Public Charter Dyslexia School!!!

Published

on

Exciting news for our Lowcountry Families!!! Gates School – Charleston’s first public charter school for students with dyslexia and related reading challenges is opening in August 2021!!!!

If you are interested, fill out a “new parent interest form” by clicking the link below:

Although this is a wonderful news and option for our families living around Charleston this is not going to be the solution to the lack of funding from (not so) Exceptional SC. Not every child with dyslexia from the area will be able to get into the school … and not that this one school will be the best fit for every family.

The purpose of this program is for the families and children to have OPTIONS to receive the education that best fits their needs … be that public, private, homeschooling or a free specialty charter school like Gates …  and #FireChadConnelly & #RemoveTomPersons‘ responsibility is to provide funding for the private school options. If they are not fulfilling that responsibility … what is their purpose???
