Please Read First: If your district syncs Otus to your SIS (Student Information System) for rostering, please contact your SIS administrator before removing a student to ensure that the removal will be permanent. If the student is not removed from your class in your SIS, they will reappear in your Otus class with the nightly sync.

To remove a student from a class:

  • Step 1: Navigate to the Students tab in the Classes module.

  • Step 2: Select the student you wish to remove from a class.

  • Step 3: Select the Information tab, then select Classes. Hover over the class you wish to remove the student from, then choose the trash can icon. Select Yes if you still wish to remove that student.

💡 Tips from the Otus Team:

  • If you are at teacher, you can only remove students from classes you are the main teacher of. If you are an administrator, you can remove any student from any class using this method.

  • Keep in mind that any grades, assignments, or lessons the student has completed in this class will be removed from the student's profile.

FAQ

  • Why does my student keep reappearing in my class the next day after I've removed them? If your district syncs Otus to your SIS (Student Information System) for rostering, you will need to contact your SIS administrator to have them removed from your roster. If the student is not removed from your class in your SIS, they will reappear in your Otus class with each nightly sync.

  • If I remove a student from a class, does all of their data get deleted as well? No, student data is not deleted when they are removed from a class, rather, it becomes "hidden", since they are no longer actively enrolled in the class. To see data from a previous student (including assessment scores and gradebook entries), the student can be added back to the class, and all data will reappear.
