The State is ready to impose a teacher evaluation system for New York City

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo says the state will be ready to impose a teacher evaluation system for New York City by June 1 if the city and teachers union still haven't agreed on a plan.

NY1 reports that Cuomo advisor Larry Schwartz told reporters in Albany Wednesday that an upcoming bill by the governor would put Education Commissioner John King in charge of choosing a plan. 

All of the state's 700 districts were supposed to adopt a teacher evaluation plan by January. New York City missed the deadline and lost $250 million in state aid as a result.

Cuomo wants the new system in place by September. King and Regents Chancellor Merryl Tisch say they hope the push from Cuomo will lead to an agreement.
