At the end of the year, there are often empty/unused courses (in pink) at the bottom of each teacher’s list in Show Who Teaches What. When moving into a new school year, these empty courses can cause confusion, especially if a teacher has switched grade levels or curriculum. May is a great time to remove these courses!
To remove an empty/unused course, follow these steps:
- Go to Grades
- Click on Show Who Teaches What
- Select an instructor’s name in the drop down, then click ‘Edit’
- At the bottom of the list of courses might be unused or empty courses (highlighted in pink). On the far right of these courses are ‘Remove’ buttons. Click ‘Remove’ to delete the empty course
If an instructor has a course that is no longer needed but you do not see a Remove button, then that course might still have students assigned to it. You will need to remove the students first before you can remove the course.
If there is an empty course but no remove button, then that course has grades (report card or grade book) entered and can not be removed by an administrator.
