Deleted Course SIS IDs/Section SIS IDs

Hello - we are just implementing and have made a few mistakes and learned quite a bit.  I haven't been able to find a complete answer to a question regarding Course and Section SIS IDs.


Most of our courses were setup manually, but we used SIS Import for user and enrollment loading.  We made some rookie mistakes with not setting up SIS IDs manually.  Some courses were deleted and setup back up.


My question is about retention of the Course and Section SIS IDs for deleted courses.  Is there a way to purge/flush deleted courses?  I keep getting the "SIS ID is already in use" for sections where I want to re-use that SIS ID.


Thanks for any wisdom!
