(6) A (.'ode of discipline adopted by the stale board of education to govern lhe conduct of students in the classroom and on school property, providing a means to remove students who just become too disruptive. (But, what becomes of the student that has been removed is still not clear). Such a code of discipline did not even take new legislation. We have had the power all along, but we never did anything about it. Indeed, most of the policy re- forms passed during the special session were not particularly controversial, which may lead you to ask, "Why weren't these changes made a long time ago?" I thank you for your partici- paiion at the education summit, lhe regional town meeting in Oak Hill, and all of the calls, let- lers, and comments that I have received in regard to the special session on education. And while I am on lhe subject of getling in- volved in your government, please note that October 9 is the deadline for voters to register for lhe November 6 general election. Even if you were not registered lbr the previous primary election last spring, you can still register to vote int he general election.
