DOR releases October 31, 2019 Fundraising Totals – It’s BAD!!!

(not so) Exceptional SC continues to fail.

Published

on

FUNDRAISING UPDATE: Only $133,350 raised in October!!!:  Well, thank you to the SC Department of Revenue for continuing to post the monthly fundraising totals with another update on Friday … and continuing to THROW #FireChadConnelly under the bus for his complete failures.

The numbers don’t lie … we only have less than 2 months left for them to raise $8,942,535 .. when they only raised $133,350 last month.  This is a dangerous and unnecessary game (not so) Exceptional SC is playing with our children.  All so Chad Connelly can have a job???  #FollowTheMoney!!!

And worse … if it was not for the $100,000 publicity stunt donation from C. Dan “Subprime” Adams who is the Board Chairman of Palmetto Promise Institute (one of the main groups behind this mess) … they would have only raised $33,350 last month.  THE WORST MONTH YET!!!

And what is (not so) Exceptional SC’s excuse … this week?  See the insanity they told parents this week in their every month or two update:

The tax law changed December 22, 2017 … nearly two years ago.  This is no “transition year” … and EVERYBODY … except apparently (not so) Exceptional SC … knew it.

And it gets worse ….

Remember this from last week.  We pointed it out to the Department of Revenue … and within a few hours their General Counsel was asking the SC Association of CPAs to REMOVE Chad Connelly’s article.  Two years on the job and Chad thinks ALL 73 business taxes in SC are eligible for the credit???

CPAs will never trust this guy!!!  Would you???

And worse … if individual CPAs don’t trust the legal / unconstitutional structure of the NATION’S ONLY government run K-12 tax credit scholarship program enough to advise a client to give $5,000 or $10,000 donation … WHY DO YOU THINK A MAJOR CORPORATION IS GOING TO GIVE MILLIONS?!?!?

Corporations don’t even donate in states were the programs are constitutional … just look at Georgia and the 2019 results of their $100 MILLION program!!! 

10% corporate donors … DOWN from 15% historically.  What is Chad Connelly talking about?!?!?!

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.

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
