Under a court order to demonstrate that they're trying to devise a new teacher evaluation system, Los Angeles Unified officials said Tuesday that they've presented formal proposals and continue to negotiate with union leaders.

The district's efforts were outlined in a document submitted to Los Angeles Superior Court Judge James Chalfant, who ruled in July that LAUSD must devise a performance evaluation that uses student test scores to help gauge a teacher's success. He set a Dec. 4 deadline for the district to finalize a deal with its unions, along with a progress report on Sept. 4.

According to the report, district officials are optimistic that a deal can be reached soon with Associated Administrators of Los Angeles.
