Embed a Google Calendar

Add a Google Calendar to Your Webpage

If you have been maintaining a school/district calendar using Google Calendars you can fairly easily embed that calendar in your SchoolFront Portal CMS website. You will still be able to maintain your Google Calendar just as you did before, but visitors to your website will be able to see the calendar in your website.
