This file is used to disconnect instructors from sections and is highly dependent on institutional processes surrounding instructor assignments. Discuss how instructors are added, removed, and swapped in the SIS. 

If you are unable to automate this file, you need to establish a workflow to remove instructors manually and avoid re-adding them every time the automated Instructor file is loaded. For example, if you are an Evaluate user, functionality allows for the removal of the instructor directly within the application. For other products, another option is to remove instructors using a manually built file after removing them from the section record in the SIS.

Best Practices for Populating Remove Instructors

Data Relationships

The Remove Instructors file references two other identifiers that are defined in other files: SectionIdentifier and PersonIdentifier. These identifiers must either be present on the instructors assignment tables or be able to be mapped through another table or view to match the identifiers used in the Sections and Accounts files.

Term Logic

If scripted, Remove Instructors term logic should align with Instructors term logic to ensure that all instructor adds, drops, and swaps are captured.
