Fargo Schools tweetsFargo parents can look tomorrow for tweets from the Fargo School District.
The school district’s Twitter account launches Thursday on the popular social media site.
Each school building also gets its own page, allowing parents to follow their child’s school and receive specific updates on student achievements and events, district spokesman Lowell Wolff said.
Just a month ago, Fargo school officials debated how they’d use Twitter. School officials gathered input from staff and decided to join the social media site for communication purposes.
“I think it will fill a gap for us that other media hasn’t been capable of doing,” Wolff said. “Parents can sign up for buildings they’re most interested in.”
West Fargo School District launched a Twitter page earlier this year.
To follow the two local school districts, go to www.twitter.com/wfschools and www.twitter.com/fargoNDSchools.
