Activating, Deactivating and Removing a Student

Activating a student simply means setting their student account to an active state, allowing them to log into Imagine Math to access their online class work. Deactivation is the opposite, where their student account is set to an inactive state, preventing them from logging in and attending class. As a District Administrator, School Administrator or Educator, you can activate or deactivate a student directly from the Students page, or from the Classes page. Both are covered in the following sections.

Activation and deactivation affects a student's access across all classes, therefore, the ability to deactivate a student's account is restricted to only those students assigned to a single class. For students assigned to multiple classes, though you can't deactivate their account, you can remove them from any class they do not need to attend. Removing a multi-class student can only be accomplished by accessing their account from the Classes page, using the Remove a student from a class steps. 

Before you begin:

  • Make sure you have the name of the student you want to activate or deactivate. 
  • Check to see if the student (or students) is assigned to more than one class, as this will be a determining factor in the approach you need to take. 
  • Ensure that you use the correct approach based on the scenario, in order to get the expected results. 

Activate or deactivate students (Students page)

The following steps allow you to quickly activate or deactivate one or more students from one or more classes, providing that each student is assigned to a single class. If a student is assigned to multiple classes, and you need to deactivate them in a class, use the steps under Remove a Student from a Class to remove them from that class.
