Apple Classroom and Clever

Our district enrolled each class in Apple Classroom using Clever. Each teacher used to create the classroom and enroll students. NOW, using Clever, there are sections for each home room and last year’s class is still part of the app. Our tech department said they deleted the old class but it remains on my app. I hate having so many things to loom through. How can the old class be completely gone?

Hi Vickie,

This could be an issue with old dating syncing from Apple School Manager and your SIS. I'd recommend speaking with your school's Apple SE. You can find out who your Apple SE is by calling 1-800-800-2775 and choose option 4 to get connected with your school's Apple sales team.

Hey Vicki, if the IT team deleted the class from Apple School Manager it should be gone from your Classroom list, but it sounds like it's hanging on. I wonder if you log out of your Managed Apple ID on the iPad and log back in, if the class might be gone?

I don't think there is much you'll be able to do about the other Clever classes syncing. Most Student Information Systems have to register different classes even if you're a self-contained classroom.

If you are self-contained, what I've seen some teachers do is just use the first class in the list for Classroom and ignore the rest.

It does sound like an IT issue! We use Jamf School to manage our iPads and set up Apple Classroom and I noticed that previous years’ classes were still hanging around in Apple Classroom. I solved it by removing any trace of the previous classes in groups etc.

So maybe go make friends with IT and help them understand what exactly your problem is?
