District qualifies for more teachers than expected The Cape Henlopen School District learned from its annual "September 30 count" that it earned more state-funded teaching units than it expected. District officials had planned for 259 units but qualified for 263. "That is better news than we thought," said Eagle Continued from page 15 attorney for his civil case." She said she's confused by the federal government paying for his de- fense on the federal charges, when Sipple can apparently afford an at- torney for the civil trial. "Even if you assume, for the purposes of argument, that Doug is responsible, I think her claim for damages is too high. It's way out of line," said Craig Karsnitz, Sipple's attorney. "We are pre- pared to defend it. "My understanding is that the dog was running at large, and that's a violation of law. Certain- ly, I'm not conceding that he's re- sponsible. We'll wait to see the evidence at trial." Karsnitz said part of Kahoe's suit is a claim for reimbursement for feed during the course of the dog's life. He said that is akin to being involved in an auto accident and asking for reimbursement for the gasoline used since assuming ownership of the vehicle. "That's not a proper element of damage," said Karsnitz. Kahoe is also asking for a new Andy Brandenberger, director of business operations.

Cape district ranks high in statewide writing assessments By Kerry Kester Cape Henlopen School District Board of Education members ex- pressed pleasure during their Thursday, Oct. 9, meeting, when they learned Cape students in grades 3, 5 and 8 earned high statewide rankings with their 1997 state writing assessments. Shields Elemetary School third- graders ranked second among 67 schools in the state, with a score of 2.9; one other school had the same score. Rehoboth Elemen- tary School fifth-graders ranked fourth among 45 schools, with a score of 2.8. Lewes Middle School's score trailed closely with 2.7, a score shared by seven schools; it was ranked eighth statewide. Lewes Middle School's eighth- graders ranked sixth among 31 schools, with a score of 2.8, a score shared by eight schools. Milton Middle School eighth- graders ranked 20th, with a score of 2,6, sharing that score with five other schools. John Kreitzer, director of in- struction, reported to the board that the district's students had the following strengths in their writ- ing assessments: overall develop- ment; organization; relevant de- tails inclusion; effective, focused, unified organization; complete sentences; and punctuation and grammar. Areas where they need growth are as follows: word choice and style, more elaboration of detail, more distinctive tone and charac- ter, and more variety in length and structure of sentences. Grades 3 and 5 need more development with spelling; grades 8 and 10 need to improve unity and transi- tions. "What it means is our stu- dents have relevant details," said Kreitzer. "They just don't talk enough about it." The writing assessments are part of the state's assessment sys- tem to determine whether students are meeting the state's academic standards. The 1996-97 writing test was the last interim test issued by the state to evaluate how well the test assesses state standards. The 1997-98 test will be the first comprehensive assessment the Department of Education will use to begin measuring and track- ing student progress against state standards. Cape students participated in field tests for other content-area assessments from Oct. 13 through Oct. 17, in English/language arts, mathematics, science and social studies. ii S&A Beads is an Emporium of crafts, culture & fun.
