Connie Hall’s Achieve Instill and Inspire’s troubling tax returns

You might be thinking, Chris you covered this last summer
and other than an article in the Folio it didn’t go anywhere. Well I bring it
up again because I have an ethic’s report in front of me where the district’s
lawyer Karen Chastain talks about it.
Taken straight from the report:
(12) Ms. Chastain provided a copy of the contract between
the school board and the Achieve Instill Inspire Foundation which reflects that
the contract period was from January 1, 2011 through June 15 2011, and the
amount of the contract was 97,400.
I also have the Achieve Instill Inspire Foundations tax
returns, from the period July 1st 2010 to June 30th 2011, where they state
their gross receipts were 86,450 dollars. Now I am not a tax guy but that seems
pretty hinky. It also seems like the non-profit was created for the sole purpose of taking this district contract.
Now somebody smarter than me suggested maybe they were
contracted for 97,400 but only did 86,450 dollars worth of work. Fair enough
but why can’t anybody seem to be able to confirm or deny it. It isn’t included
in the ethic’s report though Mrs. Hall’s Ready for Tomorrow, the for profit
that she replaced her non profit with, jacking up the fees to produce the same
work mind you, contract in front of me.

I don’t think it is an unfair question to ask where
the 10k went.
