    • On the Manage Sections page, select the check boxes beside each section you want to delete.
    • Select the check box at the top of the list to select all sections.

Deleting a section unenrolls users from the section, but not the classlist. You must manually add those users to remaining sections. See Enrolling users in sections for more information about manually adding users to existing sections.

Section-specific discussion topics remain available for reference if a section is deleted. Use the Discussions tool to delete unnecessary forums and topics.
