Have your supervisor talk to your ops super and write a memorandum stating that due to unforseen circumstances that manning has become an issue and that all staff are to cancel their current curriculum. I believe that if you submit this to the school you can have it waved.
How late are you? a couple days? a week? If its like a week it could be to late... but if its a couple days then you might have time to still be able to submit it. If you have yet to start the class then thats even better but if you're already knee deep in the course there isnt much you can do.
But a memorandum stating your current requirements and how they will effect your school courses and how leadership recommends that you drop classes would be your best bet. Most schools understand this and just need an official document. Make sure it has the Air Force headings and is all official.
Hope that helps. Its gotten me out of a few binds in other areas so it might work for you. It helps if someone in your direct chain of command does it (above your supervisor). Its probably guarenteed to work if your commander does it. I will also guarentee your commander would sign off on it if you bring it to him because you're showing you want to take part in off-base/off-duty education but obviously you put the mission before furthering your education. So he might actually sign off on it.
