Bullying

Bullying is generally defined as an intentional act that causes harm to others, and may involve verbal harassment, verbal or non-verbal threats, physical assault, stalking, or other methods of coercion such as manipulation, blackmail, or extortion.

A reasonable person should expect will have the effect of:

  • Physically harming a student or damaging a student’s property.
  • Placing a student in reasonable fear of physical harm or damage to his/her property; or
  • Substantially disrupting the instructional program or the orderly operations of the school; or
  • Is so severe, persistent, or pervasive that it creates an intimidating, hostile educational environment for the student who is bullied.

    Testimonials

    "With the help of VSS, you are empowered and encouraged to fight back and be pro-active. Then your conscience can be more at peace because you know you have taken some action to protest crimes inflicted on your loved one. It is sometimes your only consolation."

    “The one takeaway for me in working with VSS is that it is a necessary organization. I know they are funded by grants and fundraisers but it’s something we need to make sure as a community that they have the funding needed because what they do for people in need doesn’t happen anywhere else. This is the only place that this happens and VSS helps with so many things.”

    David Rose

    Anchor, Q13 News and Host, Washington’s Most Wanted

    “VSS is there when the unthinkable happens.  When a police officer knocks on your door and gives you tragic news, VSS helps navigate the court system, which can be very confusing. VSS is compassion, caring, and commitment. Commitment to once justice is done that victims and their families can move forward with their lives.”

    Mark Roe

    Snohomish County Prosecuting Attorney

    “When we can have VSS there with us working with people so they are getting taken care of, you feel like the whole system and community is more responsive. VSS can actually really work with and bond with the victims in ways that we can’t because of the volume we deal with.”

    Jennifer Gregerson

    Mayor, City of Mukilteo

    “VSS has been our partner in recovery and healing and a key part in what makes Mukilteo Strong. VSS has been a trusted advocate for the victims that have suffered so much in the community.  I’m so grateful to VSS as our partner in strength.”

    Jon Nehring

    Mayor, City of Marysville

    “VSS is there for people in their darkest hour. At a time when they need an advocate and friend, VSS steps in to fill that gap and help them begin their journey back to some sense of normalcy.” 

    Myrle Carner

    Crime Stoppers of Puget Sound

    “This thing about closure. There is never really closure in a victim’s life but VSS helps individuals to get closer to that and that’s critical because the cops and the judicial system just move on to another case because they don’t have time. Victims live with this trauma forever so VSS is with them for as long as they need the services. VSS takes the time, more importantly, they really care."
