schools received acceptable ratings said CISD offi cials New Braunfels Independent School District schools all received acceptable ratings for this past year said Karen Simpson executive direc tor of educational services for NBISD She said the district had hoped to reach the recognized level Its unfortunate because we had such big gains in some she said Our eighth and tenth grades had their numbers rise dramatical Water supply OK for now at SVHS fields By CRAIG HAMMETT Staff Writer With football practices beginning this week another group of people is looking to the skies for relieffootball players Officials at Smithson Valley High say there is no need to panic for need of water Although officials have reduced watering the practice and game fields to three hours at night and on alternating days there will still be water for drinking purposes Head Coach Larry Hill said they would have to look at future needs however and plan to have water available Were OK saidHead Coach Larry Hill Were looking at the possibility of bringing in water just for our kids to drink during CISD Maintenance Director Roy Linnartz said officials were monitoring wells including one on top of a hill near the school They should have plenty of he said Linnartz did say as he told the CISD School Board last week that continued dry weather would result in fur ther conservation efforts We dont want to get in a situation where were endangering kids by having them play on hard Weather forecasts call for a better chance of showers this week than in past weeks however significant rainfall is still out of the picture for the near future weather fore casters say Students must pass between 25 and 65 percent of the TAAS tests to gain a mastery level Dr Simpson said the district showed big gains in every phase but writing Ironically writing showed the largest gains the previous testing period She said the district would need to concentrate on improving math and writing scores in particular She also added that state funding not based on the accreditation of AEIS ratings Schools can receive a bonus through the AEIS scores should they perform very well how ever this happens rarely she said Dr Carol Hall of the CISD told the CISD Board of Trustees last week that requirements for reaching accred itation will become much tougher next year Standards are much more lenient this time she told the board The state will begin breaking down requirements into more specific cat egories looking for improvements or passing levels in distinct groups based on factors such as minority status for example River authority cuts Guadalupe flow again By CRAIG HAMMETT Staff Writer Flow rates on the Guadalupe River have been cut back to 100 cubic feet per second by the GuadalupeBlanco River Authority Current inflow to the Canyon Lake Reser voir is 63 cfs as a very dry June and July have wilted the Guadalupe But this summer differs little from the one of 1993 when inflows reached 74 cfs in August and release rates went to 100 cfs in September These last couple of years havent been planning and development for the GBRA Last summer and this summer were dry Before heavy spring rains this year which sent release rates above the cfs mark release rates totaled only 150 cfs in January and February Those heavy spring rains provided good recreational conditions for the Memorial Day and July Fourth weekends which drew heavy crowds according to local businesses With low flow rates now however and little rain in sight the prospects for good water condi When you get below 100 cfs youre real ly in what we call a passive recreation said Welsch Welsch said the past two dry years follow a wetter than normal summer in 1992 and a more normal year in 1991 when release rates reached 370 cfs in July and dropped to 180 cfs in August before reaching back to 300 cfs by September This year still stands far above the drought conditions of 1984 when the river flow dropped
