    Nelson County School Board members and Superintendent Anthony Orr observed Amy Adams’ fourth- and fifth-grade math class learn coordinate geometry with the help of a smart board Thursday, one of approximately 14 boards New Haven School Principal Jason Detre expects will be installed in the school by the end of February.
