(NECN: South Hadley, Mass.) - The town's school committee has approved an anti-bullying policy just as a family has come forward and reported that their son was bullied at the school.

The new 62-page policy, released Wednesday, comes six months after the suicide of 15-year-old Phoebe Prince. Six classmates are facing charges in connection with her death.

In the latest incident, a court hearing is scheduled today for the boy whose family alleges he was bullied at the school.
