    2. Edit the information as needed.

  6. To delete custom student fields:
    1. Deleting a custom field also deletes the field from any custom pages and the values of that field. If you manually entered the field on a PowerSchool page, you must manually remove the field from the page.
    2. Click the name of the field you want to delete. 
    3. Select the checkbox to confirm that you want to delete the field.
      Note: If you do not select the checkbox and click Delete, the system displays a message indicating that the field was not deleted. Click Back to return to the previous page. Select the checkbox, and then click Delete.
    4. Click Delete.
    5. Click Confirm Delete. Do not leave the page until a message appears indicating that the process is complete. 
      Note: The system lists any PowerSchool pages that include the custom field. If any pages appear, you must manually remove the fields from those pages.
