Deletion & Export Requests

CS First users are able to delete their CS First data or request an export of their data. Please read on below to learn more about how to delete information related to your account or request an export of your data from CS First.

Delete CS First class

Deleting a class will permanently delete data including the assigned activities and student roster. However, you will still have access to other classes associated with your account. Co-teachers are also able to delete your classes.

When you delete a class, any CS First student accounts that belong to only that class (and no other CS First class) are also deleted. Those students will no longer be able to sign in to CS First, and will lose all CS First progress and data (such as survey responses). 

Note: Students signing in with Workspace for Education accounts will not have their accounts deleted but they will lose their CS First data.

This action cannot be undone.

To delete a CS First class:

  1. Log in to CS First.

  2. Visit the Classes page.

  3. Click the three dots in the upper right corner of the class you want to delete.

  4. Select Archive.

  5. Click on Archived classes.

  6. Click the three dots in the upper right corner of the class you want to delete, and select Delete class.

Delete CS First student account

Deleting a student’s CS First account will permanently delete data, such as student progress and survey responses, from all other classes (including classes with other teachers). Co-teachers are also able to delete student accounts. 

This action cannot be undone.

Delete CS First teacher account

Deleting your CS First account will permanently delete data including access to all classes and student rosters.
