Adding a student

There are currently two options for adding students. We enourage you to download and use our school import document found here. Once you have completed the document, please email it to support@fathomreads.com and our staff will process it within two business days.

Alternatively, you can add a student manually by clicking the "Add student" button located at the top right of the students module. Select "add a student" and you will be prompted with a pop-up window. Fill in the required information (first name, last name, email, username, and password). If you want to add the student to a class you can select the class from the dropdown menu and select enroll. Otherwise, click save to enter the student into your database without associating them with a class. You should now see the newly added student listed in the students module.

ClassLink

We are currently working to integrate ClassLink support into the Fathom system. This will allow customers with a classlink account to easily import all students associated with their ClassLink account. We are targeting a late October 2021 launch for this feature.
