How do I de-cross-list a section that was cross-listed by our SIS import?

Our district's SIS import is set up to cross-list courses with multiple sections (three sections of Algebra I for example), which makes sense in a majority of scenarios. But, in certain cases, it doesn't fit the bill. A teacher would like to de-cross-list one section from a course that has three courses. (That section covers the same standards but does so with an entirely different curriculum and focus.)

I looked at guide but it says to use a "De-Cross-List This Section" button.  I do not see that button when I view this course. In fact, I still see the "Cross List This Section" button!

The guide, it sounds like, is talking about de-crossing a section that had been previously manually cross-listed. I am wondering if there are different steps for a scenario where the cross-listing was done automatically via SIS import. 

And I am a full Account Admin.

Community Member - Yes, you are correct.  That is the best description of what is happening and how I should create a solution for this unique situation.

After a discussion with our CSM (‌), she helped me wrap my head around this, and, like you guys,stated that I shouldn't see this multiple section course as cross-listed and that I could create a new course and use cross-listing to pull out one of the sections into it.
