Scheduling Classes to Dismiss Automatically
Instructors can set their classes to automatically dismiss the student devices when the class ends.
When a class is started and restrictions are enabled for a group of students, those restrictions will remain in place until the feature is turned off or the class is dismissed.
To help ensure restrictions are not enabled after class time, instructors can schedule their class to dismiss automatically at specific time or after a specific duration of time.
Setting Automatic Class Dismissal
- Log into LanSchool Air. The My Classes page shows existing classes.
- Click on the gear icon on a class card.
- Click on Details.
- Check the box next to Automatically dismiss class
- Choose the time to dismiss the class
- Dismiss at default end time (set the time based on your time zone)
- Dismiss _ from the start of the class. Choose how many minutes after the class starts to dismiss.
- Select Done.
Any instructor or co-teacher in the class can edit the class end time.

You can choose to edit the time if needed. To edit the time, click on the pen icon to update the time and type in the amount of time you wish to add or subtract. Once finished click on the check mark to save the changes.
