Gov. Andrew Cuomo and state leaders have created a plan to ensure that teacher evaluation systems remain in place until they’re renegotiated.

The deal comes in the middle of an impasse between the city and the teachers union, who have failed to come to an agreement on a new teacher evaluation system. The plan ensures that expired evaluation systems remain effective until an agreement on a new system is reached.

Mayor Michael Bloomberg said Monday that the new plan is “helpful” but that the city still needs to negotiate with the teachers union, the New York Post reports.

The city lost approximately $240 million in state aid this year because it failed to make a deal on the evaluations by the Jan. 17 deadline. Cuomo’s new plan is part of the new state budget that also requires the city to have a new evaluation system in place by May 29, or it will received a state-imposed one on June 1.

State lawmakers also added nearly $390 million in extra aid for city schools in the new budget, which the legislature is expected to finish voting on by Thursday, the Post reports.
