    You can automatically undo student scheduling by clicking Clear student schedules on the Scheduling page. You can clear schedules for all students in a school, academic year, and session. Or, you can select a query of students or just one student to clear.
    • Cleared schedules can be recovered only by restoring a database backup or scheduling scenario.
    • The program does not clear schedules for students with recorded marking column grades or skill ratings for any of their classes.
    • If the withdrawal date of a term has passed, you will receive a message the program will drop but not withdraw the students from the class and you can decide whether or not to continue.
    • Clearing Student schedules does not not remove course requests
