Well … IT HAS HAPPENED AGAIN … another data breach at (not so) Exceptional SC and the SC Department of Revenue exposing YOUR CHILD’S NAME.

PARENTS, check your email today, at 7:59AM from jeffdavisFIRST@gmail.com, entitled “The Art of the Backroom Deal”.  

What alerted parents to the DATA BREACH???  Look at the name … IT WAS THEIR CHILD’S NAME!!!!  Recall when (not so) Exceptional SC was sending out emails to parents … addressed to the CHILD applicant?   YES … the ties are DIRECTLY to (not so) Exceptional SC (and thus the SC Department of Revenue).

And the parents we have talked to are ANGRY!!!

So … CALL / email (not so) Exceptional SC and ask them to explain how YOUR EMAIL … and YOUR CHILD’S NAME … got in the possession of the people sending these “anonymous” hit pieces.

This is frankly DUMBFOUNDING that these people think they are that untouchable … or they are this stupid!!!

AS to the content of the email … here is what it should really say … “Every child whose parent DID NOT DONATE got a FULL SCHOLARSHIP!!!” … because back in the day when Palmetto Kids FIRST and other independent non-profits were administering the program … EVERYONE GOT FULL SCHOLARSHIPS!!!!  And your child today would probably have a full year scholarship FULLY FUNDED for 2019-2020 if this cabal of “paid” advocates where not around.
 

#NeverSurrender!!!

Call your SC State Legislator and tell them about this latest debacle if you want change.

And it is not like this has not happened before.  Remember this investigative article on the matter …

SLED UPDATE – Chad Connelly Embezzlement Matter

Published

on

Back in March, the South Carolina Attorney General’s Office issued a FORMAL referral to SLED (State Law Enforcement Division) to investigate the Chad Connelly “Embezzlement Matter”.  

This is a known and disclosed fact … yet Chad Connelly has been running around South Carolina telling folks there is no SLED investigation.  Wow, this is sad. 

Well, last week we sent letters inquiring into the status of the investigation.  It has been four months, so maybe they had an update.

Well, we received a reply … and apparently the investigation is still ongoing. 

This is going to be BIG friends.  We don’t think this one can be swept under the rug.  We are told that South Carolina law enforcement knows they have to do something and they know people are watching.  South Carolina is known for it’s PUBLIC CORRUPTION

What has gone on with our school choice program is in our opinion PUBLIC CORRUPTION at its worst!!!

“SLED or any other agency”???OR ANY OTHER AGENCY???  Who else may be looking into Chad Connelly and this embezzlement matter???  Maybe just standard lawyer language … or was this a clue that other law enforcement agencies are looking into this matter.

This is a highly political matter.  Chad Connelly is friends with A LOT of political figures.  But even though some folks have tried to cover up for Chad … there are people trying to expose this matter for us, for you, and most importantly for your K-12 children.  

Stay tuned … and KEEP PUSHING!!!  Expose them all!!!

Exceptional SC’s Secretary of State Financial Report Late

Published

on

Annually (not so) Exceptional SC is required to file a TAX RETURN as well as REGISTER with the SC Secretary of State.  The latest extended deadline for the 7/1/2019-6/30/2020 tax return is May 15th, 2021.  We have been trying to get a copy of the tax return, a PUBLIC DOCUMENT, to no avail … so the situation seems VERY curious.

So we checked this week with the SC Secretary of State’s Office.  Filing the TAX RETURN with the Secretary of State is the “Financial Report”.  That was due as well May 15th, 2021.  As of today, it has not been filed.

What does that mean?  Well, technically Exceptional SC is still registered for right now, the SC Secretary of State’s Office confirmed that “There is currently a violation for that delinquent report that is accruing a fine of $10/day.”

Just further evidence the Government Appointed Board Members at (not so) Exceptional SC have no idea what they are doing.

(not so) Exceptional SC … late … but FINALLY … opened applications for the new school year … with a limited time to apply until JUNE 30th!!!

Basically … if you are  #1 a NEW FAMILY or #2 a returning family that did NOT apply in 2020-2021 … the application process will be open until JUNE 30th.  

For everyone else, your application will ROLL-OVER.  Always double check with (not so) Exceptional SC however to be safe.   
TRANSFERING SCHOOLS???:  The below form was also included in the email update this week.  A little strange as it was just typed in the email text … but nonetheless, this is the information they need if a student transfers to a different school.

There was no mention in the email, so maybe the above form / image is the safest route … but you can always try the below link they have online as well.  AGAIN, always double check with (not so) Exceptional SC however to confirm receipt of your child’s information.  

Online Form:   https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLScacsIMrwXXxvloRm2RGUJiRmn5OgANMCuycsE6nximU8zo6g/viewform
