Engelhardt and Engelhardt, Inc., Purdy Station, NY.
Midland Park, New Jersey, is a small borough with an estimated population in 1978 of 8,500 persons. The first part of the master plan for educational facilities in the area begins with an overview using maps to illustrate characteristics including its topography, relationship to key population centers and major transportation routes, boundaries, and public facilities. The text summarizes the historical background of the borough and describes local industry and business, current school systems, and environmental factors. Demographic factors described in text, maps, and tables include zoning and land use, housing, population characteristics, and enrollment data and estimates. A section on the education program explains the administrative and grade organization, educational philosophy, curriculum, interdisciplinary and cocurricular activities, pupil personnel services, community use of schools, and food service. A table gives some selected facts about the three existing schools, followed by a description of each along with site and floor plans and facility needs. The final portion of the report deals with alternatives that could be followed within the next 10 years with major short-term and long-term maintenance and renovation projects. (MLF)
