Remove a student or co-teacher from a class

This page is for teachers. Students go here.

Primary teachers and co-teachers can remove a student or co-teacher from a class at any time. 

Before you begin

  • Removing a student from your class removes their grades from the gradebook and they won't see your assignments in Classroom. However, their work remains in the class folder in Google Drive and their posts remain in the class stream.
  • Before you remove a co-teacher who’s the owner of the class Drive folder, have them make another teacher in the class the folder’s owner.
  • You cannot remove the primary teacher from a class. If the primary teacher wants to leave a class, they must make a co-teacher the owner of the class and then leave the class.
