#FireChadConnelly Lies Confirmed: Only $347,382.41 Raised

Published

on

Here it is … another lie by #FireChadConnelly. When will it stop??? When will (not so) Exceptional SC’s Board act? When will they take our families with children with special needs seriously and do their job?!?

Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request was sent to the Department of Revenue when we read that Chad Connelly told The State Newspaper that Exceptional SC had raised “about $2 million”.  We did not believe it!!!

SC DOR released the fundraising as of February 29th, 2020 … and it is HORRIBLE!!!  $347,382.41.

Remember, Georgia raised $81.8 MILLION in the first 7 days of 2020 … and #FireChadConnelly can only raise $347K in TWO MONTHS!!!

To read the “Fake News” article click HERE or picture above.

But, you are probably asking … didn’t The State Newspaper “fact check” the $2 MILLION fundraising number #FireChadConnelly told them???

Well … that is a big NO!!!  

We have asked The State Newspaper to fact check it … they were too busy with Covid … so we have now sent them the info from the SC Department of Revenue … and they are still too busy.

Still don’t believe in #FakeNews???  They know the truth … will they follow-up???  Stay tuned … 

Also we are told the three (3) Exceptional SC lawyers were contacted for comment.  Remember, Chad Connelly told THE COURT in a SWORN AFFIDAVIT dated March 4th, 2020, that Exceptional SC had raised $1,045,000 in the prior 21 days (2/11/2020 – 3/3/2020) … and that they were raising approximately $50,000 per day!!!

No response from the lawyers either.  It will be interesting what the Judge says when he is told #FireChadConnelly lied to him in a SWORN AFFIDAVIT. 

ANY PARENT / LAWYERS OUT THERE … WHAT DO YOU THINK THE COURT WILL SAY ABOUT THIS???  LET US KNOW YOUR THOUGHTS!!!  info@palmettokidsFIRST.org, 843-501-1842 (office), 843-901-8035 (Olga’s cell).

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:
https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSed4FhHPVCoWtOKoN0-4khw8qlZWPT1s3beEYHObRqID-og1Q/viewform

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???
