Pittsburgh Public Schools has settled a mother's lawsuit claiming the district failed to protect her two daughters from bullies at John Morrow Elementary School in the North Side.

The district agreed to pay $25,000 in attorney fees and set up a $20,000 education fund for each girl to provide services such as tutoring. Any money not used before the girls graduate would remain with the district.

Charles E. Steele, the lawyer for the family, declined comment. Brian Gabriel, the lawyer for the district, said the purpose of the settlement was to focus more on the girls' future rather than the allegations of bullying.
