Archive and Delete your classes

  • This is a two step process. You must archive the class first, then you can delete it. Keep in mind if you delete the class by accident, it can be restored.


Delete the Classroom calendar in Google Calendar

  • Open up Google Calendar and delete the calendar. Just be sure you want to delete it because it is not recoverable!

  • If you are unsure about this, then just hide it in your list


Unenroll in unwanted classes

  • If you are enrolled as a student in another class, be sure you unenroll from it so that you do not continue to receive notifications from it.


Export any assignment rubrics

  • Before archiving and deleting a class, you may want to export an assignment rubric to a Google Sheet.


Manage your Drive folders that are associated with Google Classroom

  • You can delete any classroom folders that were created when you created a new class. Just be sure you do not delete the CLASSROOM folder in 'My Drive'. Additionally, you can create a folder for the school year, and just move all of your class folders into the archive folder.
