Using ClassLink for Teachers

Teachers can sign in, create classes, and roster students with the Newsela + ClassLink integration.

Logging In

  • Sign into your School/District ClassLink account on ClassLink.

  • Click on the Newsela icon.


Importing Classes and Rosters from ClassLink

  • In Newsela, go to your Classes page by clicking your name in the upper right-hand corner and selecting the Classes tab from the settings menu.  

  • Click Sync with ClassLink.

  • Select the classes you want to import, choose a grade level and subject for each, then click Import Selected Classes.

  • You may need to wait for the sync to complete.

  • To confirm that your students are in your class, go to your Students page. Under each class name, you’ll see a list of students in the class. The student roster in Newsela should correspond to the student roster in ClassLink

Imported students will see your class on their settings page.   


ClassLink FAQs

Q: Why can’t I import my class?

A: Newsela only imports current classes from Classlink. If your school year starts on September 1, for example, you will be able to import classes starting September 1, but not earlier. 

If your semester has started, and you can’t import a class, you may have to restore an archived class following these steps:

  • Click on the Archived Classes tab.

  • Select restore to reactivate the classes you need.

  • Navigate back to the Classes tab.

  • Sync your classes again.
