A deadline has been set for New York City to finally reach a deal on teacher evaluations.

Commissioner of Education John King said last week there will be a state-created evaluation system for city schools by June 1 if the city and the United Federation of Teachers can't resolve disputed issues.

Both the city and the union had until midnight May 8 to enter online their 20-page proposals.

Mr. King said the two sides will talk over the phone this week to identify their differences. If the two parties can't resolve the disputed issues by May 29, Mr. King will conduct an expedited arbitration hearing. After such a hearing, he would issue a final and binding evaluation plan by June 1.
