The deadline for school districts across the state to submit teacher evaluations is January 17th.
The Remsen Central School District is only one of nine school districts statewide that have yet to submit a plan.
All schools must submit the Annual Professional Performance Review or teacher evaluations in order to secure state aid funding.
If Remsen does not make the deadline the school district will not see the money. Remsen's Interim Superintendent says the teacher evaluations would have been submitted months ago.
But, the school has yet to work out a new contract with the teachers. Therefore, before they can submit anything to the state, the school must negotiate a new contract with teachers that expired in June of last year.
"There was a change in administration. So, on my arrival on September 1st, the plan had not been started where other schools already submitted. It's never over until it's over. Discussions are going on and both sides are working diligently to get things done. That is an everyday thing. You work on it and make it work out and you settle your contract and you move on," said interim Superintendent, Carl Klossner.
The State Education Department says the teacher evaluations are a way to improve public education.
The Remsen Superintendent says he's hopeful the school district will make the deadline.
