Superintendent Search
Dear Blackhawk Community and Staff,

Your local school board is about to launch a school superintendent search, and I have been selected to lead the effort.

My name is Dr. Edward Albert, former educator and school superintendent now serving as Executive Director of the Pennsylvania Association of Rural and Small Schools.  I am eager to get acquainted with as many of you as I can during this process because your input will have a crucial impact on the school board’s ultimate hiring decision.

I have created three activities for school and community involvement. My first priority is visiting schools (a date will be given shortly) to talk with staff. Next, I have planned a community night on to hear more about your interests and requirements for the next superintendent.

If you are unable to attend, you still have the opportunity to contribute. I have created an online survey to collect your thoughts and opinions. The survey will be accessible on the district website until October 31. I hope many of you will take the time to weigh in. We need to hear from you.

I look forward to conducting this search and working toward the ultimate goal of identifying the best candidate for your district.

Visual Art

  I am Mrs. Murtha the art teacher at both Northwestern at BIS and Blackhawk Intermediate School. I teach students in grades Kindergarten through Fourth Grade at these buildings. I am very excited about this year and the projects we will be producing. I have enjoyed getting to know all of the students at BIS and NW at BIS.I do not expect each student to draw like Leonardo Da Vinci but I expect them to do their best.  Don't forget to visit my personal webpage.  Please feel free to contact me with any questions you might have.
