Striking Tacoma teachers and school district officials are on their way to Olympia.

Principal, er, GovernorChris Gregoire issued a request — just short of an order, really — calling on both sides to head down I-5 and see her in her office if they couldn’t reach a deal today.

Gregoire is due to meet the teachers’ union and school district in her office starting at around 3 p.m.

We’ll have coverage from the Legislative Building of whatever develops.
