Rich Wood from SEAwas in room when district's brief briefing ended. He said SEA won't resume talks unless district indicates that it's ready to give. SEA *did* respond to Tues. offer, he contends - by declaring the strike.
Update from Kyle Stokes at KPLU:
STRIKE: It's official — no classes in
There is also no further discussion about SPS going to court.
And some clarification on the mediator who apparently talking to both sides but neither side is talking to each other. Oh dear.
end of update
Unfortunately, I saw this press release 20 minutes too late and I can't get there in time. Will check Tweets from Kyle Stokes at KPLU for updates when press conference starts.
