  1. What is your name?     Mike Bullock

  1. Family information you would like to share?     I am married to Terri & we have 2 children - Matthew, who graduated from Harleton High School & is currently attending Louisiana Tech & Morgan, who is currently attending & playing softball at Bossier Parish Community College.

  1. What made you decide to serve on the school board?     I decided to serve on the school board because I want to take part in the process of providing the best education to every student in the district.  My emphasis is on Transparency, Open Communications, Safe Schools & Support for Teacher Innovation.

  1. How long have you served on the board?     I have served on the school board since June 30, 2015.

  1. What do you enjoy most about serving on the school board?     What I enjoy most about serving on the school board is being involved in the process of discussion & deliberation in making decisions affecting our school district.  My goal is to take the time to become informed & gain knowledge on the upcoming agendas & issues.  I have an open door policy & I encourage input from the Harleton ISD Community.  I also enjoy watching our young people being recognized for student of the month & other achievements along with teacher presentations on programs which positively impact our students' education.

  1. What is the most challenging part of serving on the school board?     The most challenging part of serving on the board right now is learning & understanding  the process.  There are so many laws & regulations in the Texas Education Code that pertain to how the school must operate, which takes many of the decision making issues out of local control

I encourage everyone to take some time & see what is going on in your school district by checking out the school board agenda & attending a meeting.  Agendas & meetings are posted online.
