During this time the account can still be extended by an admin. If the account is not extended, it will be deleted from the organization after 2 weeks.This function can be used in the basic-school.cloud to perform a year change or to clean up the organization. Inactive users or students who leave for the new school year will be deleted by the organization after the specified expiration date.
