Deleting a course in SIS

I've created a course in the wrong school and wish to delete the course from the system and recreate it under the right school. How do I do that?

Welcome to PowerSchool Community! @ating 

 

We do not recommend deleting courses because that could result in orphaned records being created and leading into system-wide errors.

Hi @ating 

 

While there are ways to delete a course in PowerSchool SIS, we recommend working with your district's Designated Support Contact or PowerSchool System Administrator who can collaborate with PowerSchool SIS Support to ensure that student data is not affected during the process.

I understand not to just casually delete courses, but this one is a brand new course with no student data attached to it yet, so it is safe to delete it - hoping to make the correction before the new school year begins to avoid future problems

Hi! @ating,

 

If you want to delete the course in the Student Information System, we recommend reaching out to the Designated Support Contacts within the district who should be able to work with the PowerSchool support team and assist further.

Don't you wish you could just get an answer?  Obviously, if you've created a course at the district level, you probably are the or don't need a PS admin in your district.  I have the same question.  Don't they want us to come here for answers instead of bothering them on the phone?  Ah well.

Re: Deleting a course in SIS

We do not recommend deleting the course on PowerSchool SIS because that might result in the orphan data on PowerSchool SIS.  You should be able to make the course unavailable by removing its availability to any school for a selected year. This article should guide Admin through the process of editing the course availability. 

 

Please note: If you are not a PowerSchool Technical Contact, we recommend all users work with their Technical Contacts before making any changes in PowerSchool SIS.

 

Please let us know if this helps.
