Teachers have been trying to have a hand into how their evaluated.
HSTA held a series of town hall meetings in October, then just put out a survey to its members to get their final input.
"I'm supporting the teachers and the staff who have worked hard to put these evaluations together. The program needs a chance to operate," said Abercrombie.
The state had hoped to resume negotiations on Dec. 19, but HSTA negotiators pushed it to Jan. 11.
