the day Tuesday all day Wednesday and part of Thursday Motorists going toward downtown will be diverted right at the light on Nacogdoches and then back around to Seguin on the other side of the tracks According to Kopp TxDOT studied 70 of these type railroad structures across the state The study ranked the railroad underpass on Landa St No 1 in terms of needing repair It ranked the Seguin St underpass No 11 We convinced the state to switch the order of pri strictly from a volume said Kopp New Braunfels continuing eco nomic and population growth may be contributing to the citys escalating

running 1015 percents higher than last year The number of major crimes record ed by the police department also through October include School districts performance reports being sent to parents By

Independent School District said the Texas Education Agency TEA has released its 1993 94 Academic Excellence Indicator System reports on every public school in the state These reports determine each schools accreditation based on test scores such as the Texas Assess ment of Academic Skills Hall reported to the CISD board that all schools in the CISD received their accreditation She added mat par ents will receive reports on their chil drens schools and be able to com pare different categories Those indi vidual report cards have not been delivered to the two county school districts however Its going to talk about TAAS she said It is broken down into different categories They can compare to the average group of other schools most resembling The state breaks the test scores into categories such as male female eco cally disadvantaged white His nonv panic African blisuthepercenta for to particular 8C can other etc of passing scores I district region and state so that administraton and parents can compare The report also includes a group designation of schools that match the makeup of a particular school for even more comparison Some scores however compares results from 1993 to 94 even though the tests were different in some cases The only aspect parents cannot see are specific comparisons to schools around the state For instance for peo ple who moved from another district they would have to contact that previ ous school or the TEA to find scores for that district and compare They would have to get those from where they said Hall Or they could call the The report also gives information on the staff at each district with infor mation on experience salaries etc compared to the date averages and also reports on the tax information compared to the state New Braunfels ISO
