Apple School Manager automatically creates classes when you connect your Student Information System (SIS) or upload content using SFTP. These classes automatically appear in Schoolwork and you can use Apple School Manager to edit the name. For classes not in your SIS or SFTP upload, like an after-school club, you can manually create a class.

Administrators, Site Managers, People Managers, Managers, and Instructors can create, edit, and delete classes in Apple School Manager.
Manually create a class
- Sign in to Apple School Manager.
- Click Classes in the sidebar.
- Click .
- In the Class Name field, enter a class name. This name will appear in Schoolwork for teachers and students.
- You can optionally enter a course name, class ID, and class number.
- Select a location, then add teachers and students.
- Click Save.
You can edit classes that you or others manually created at your location.
For classes automatically created from your SIS or SFTP upload, you can edit the class name that is shown in Schoolwork. By default, the class name is copied from the Course Name and Class Number fields defined in SIS or SFTP.
If a class that is used for Schoolwork is deleted in your SIS or SFTP upload, it will be converted to a manual class in Apple School Manager. This lets teachers preserve or reuse their existing Handouts in new classes.
If you use Apple School Manager to delete a class that was previously used with Schoolwork, all Handouts and data will be deleted.
