Social media integration (Facebook, Twitter)

The school settings page includes setup for Facebook, Twitter and attendance alerts. Learn how to find settings and connect your social media.

Before CatapultConnect can post messages to social media, it needs access codes for Facebook and Twitter.

    If you are on the Organization Communication Team, go to a specific site first: From the district dashboard, choose View All Sites > site name.
