Williams looking at Exhibit SG 1.
Thomas says doesn't conflict resolution and peer mediation fit in the spectrum of description. Yes says Williams.
Williams says constructive family activities involved whole families not peer to peer mediation.
But Thomas says these are broad terms that could encompass this. Yes agrees Williams.
Carlita met with principal of Sherrard and staff of Vanguard only. Williams knows that she didn't meet other staff at the Sherrard School because she was with Carlita on all her visits to the school.
Williams says she asked Carlita to submit documentation for her work.
