Garwood, New Jersey, is a small borough of 0.69 square miles with an estimated population in 1978 of 4,856 persons. This master plan for educational facilities begins with an overview of the district that describes its beginnings as an industrial community. A number of maps illustrate characteristics of the area including its topography, relationship to key population centers and transporations routes, and locations of community facilities. The text describes local industry and business, environmental factors, and the current school system. Demographic factors described in text, maps, and tables include zoning and land use, housing, transportation, population characteristics, and enrollment data and estimates. The section on the current education program details the administrative and grade organization, educational philosophy, curriculum, interdisciplinary and cocurricular activities, pupil personnel services, community use of schools, and food service. A brief description of the three elementary schools is provided, with tables giving the capacity and educational and physical evaluation of each school, along with site and floor plans. The plan recommends closing one small building and consolidating all school activities, including administration, in a complex composed of the other two schools. (MLF)
