Using Google Classroom with Fathom Reads

If your school district uses Google Classroom, you can easily integrate Google Classroom with the Fathom Reads platform. After connecting your Google Classroom and Fathom Reads accounts, you will be able to easily import information such as classes, students, and assignments. Note: Google Classroom only supports importing at the class level.

Connecting Google Classroom to Fathom Reads


Google Classroom and Fathom Reads can be connected and synced in order to transfer classes, students, and assignments. It is important to note that transfers can only happen between Google Classroom and Fathom Reads Teacher Accounts and that you must be signed into a Fathom Reads teacher account to begin the sync process. Complete the following steps to connect Google Classroom to Fathom Reads:

1. Ensure that your classes and students are set up in your Google Classroom or Fathom Reads account.

2. From your Fathom Reads teacher account, navigate to your dashboard and find the Classes module.
