About 50 members of the public attended the South Fayette school board meeting tonight, but they stayed silent on the recent bullying controversy that had drawn many of them to attend.

School officials did not discuss any bullying issues, and when board President Len Fornella announced the open forum, no one from the public offered a comment on bullying.

The audience included Shea Love, mother of South Fayette sophomore Christian Stanfield, and some of her supporters.

School officials had reported Christian, 15, to police and charged him with disorderly conduct for making an audio recording of his alleged bullies during a special-education math class in February.

The Allegheny County district attorney's office withdrew the charge last week.

After the meeting, Ms. Love said she and other parents were considering what actions to take next to help address bullying problems.

“This is our community,” Ms. Love said. “What do we do? How do we fix it?”
