Deadline looming for NYC and UFT deal

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

The deadline is rapidly approaching for the city and the union that represents public school teachers to reach an agreement on a system for evaluating teachers. 

The deadline for submitting the self-imposed evaluation system is Thursday. 

Negotiations on the evaluation plan resumed last week between the city and the United Federation of Teachers for the first time since mid-December. 

Missing the deadline would cost the city $250 million in state aid plus an additional $200 million in grants. 

Each of New York State's 700 school districts was told to submit a teacher evaluation plan by January 17.
