Using Clever with Fathom Reads


If your school district uses Clever, you can easily integrate Clever with the Fathom Reads platform. After syncing your Clever and Fathom Reads accounts, you will be able to easily import user information for staff, teachers and students, as well as class rosters. It is important that you begin the integration process at least two weeks before teachers and students need access to Fathom Reads.
