My school email address is not @gmail.com, however, it is managed by GMail, so I log into a special school log-in and it takes me to my email with the familiar GMail tools and GMail inbox.

Unfortunately, it linked itself to a youtube account. I want to either delete this YouTube account or unlink it.

However, as you can see, there is no unlink button nor are there delete account options. I also tried this question : How do I unlink my Youtube account from my gmail account? and followed the link to Unlink Youtube and Google Accounts, but it doesn't do anything and simply redirects me back to my Manage Account page.

It sounds like you have a temporary YouTube account. Try completing the username and channel details. Then I think you will get the option to close your account. –  Barry Oct 5 '11 at 8:42

Go to Google Dashboard, log in with your Gmail account and from there you can manage your Google account, including unlinking YouTube accounts.

--EDIT--

From Google dashboard find Youtube and click on Profile Setup, then Manage Account, and under that you will have a button to close the youtube account, see screenshot.

I don't see any options to unlink any accounts from that page, can you provide the next step? –  rlb.usa Oct 4 '11 at 20:55

I can't press that button because I don't have it. See my screenshot. The entire Close Account section isn't there. –  rlb.usa Oct 4 '11 at 21:58
    
+1 @rlb.usa It's there as I just used it a few days ago. It takes some time for Google to perpetuate updates to all of it's users accounts. Try clearing your cache to see if that makes a difference. –  Evan Plaice Feb 3 '12 at 22:06
