Staff from Ringwood School in Ringwood walked around classrooms and observed instruction by many of the Sprague staff recently. Former Sprague teacher and now Ringwood Principal Andy Elbert invited his staff to Sprague as a way to provide them with inspiration from what he called an excellent academic institution.
"I took teachers back to my roots where they can learn and grow from a successful district," Mr. Elbert said.
Visiting staff observed teachers in art, music, reading, and math. They quizzed teachers and students about everything from curriculum to classroom furniture.
