ICSD Print Services

Most printing at ICSD is done through our leased Konica Minolta print centers. These devices are supported by the Technology Department budget and are serviced by Eastern Copy. These print centers offer the fastest throughput at around .6 cents per page, often with finishing options. For more information about printing to the Konica Minolta copiers, please see the Print Queues section below. If you need a direct connection to a print center please submit a spiceworks request.

Some buildings still support older HP, Dell, and other smaller printers in some locations with their annual budget. These devices are only minimally supported by the Technology Department and any toner or maintenance costs are the responsibility of the building. For more information about printing to these older printers, please see the Older Printers sections below. If you need help connecting to such a printer please submit a spiceworks request.

Print Queues (Konica Minolta)

During the 2012-2013 school year we piloted a new printing system at Fall Creek elementary school. Beginning in December 2013 we expanding this system to the rest of ICSD building by building and the process finished with the IHS roll-out this fall.

Instead of printing to individual printers and print centers (copiers), users will instead send their print jobs to a “print queue”. Each building will have two print queues of the form XX-printing and XX-color where XX is the school code for your building. For example, South Hill's print queues are named "sh-printing" and "sh-color".

Windows users should send all of their print jobs (color and B&W) to the XX-printing queue while mac users need to send B&W jobs to XX-printing and color print jobs to XX-color. In other words, the XX-color queue is only to support mac computers.

IHS also has two extra queue to accommodate printing to the 950 in the H-building and to the 42 in g223. Click here for more info.

Once you send your print job to a queue, you can go to an associated printer center and release your print job using the attached swipe device/key pad. Print jobs are released using the magnetic stripe on the back of your ID badge or by entering your student or employee ID number into the keypad. The generic student accounts for elementary schools will be assigned a number and generic cards will be produced for library use. New staff ID cards with magnetic stripes will be distributed during the roll-out in each building. Students will need to use the 9 digit student ID number from School Tool in this new printing system. This is the same number they use for checkout in the cafeteria and is available in School Tool.

There are several advantages to the new printing system:

  • Print jobs do not print until you are at the printer(s). This means you can send confidential print jobs to printers in common areas.
  • 5-15% of paper waste will be avoided as there will be no more orphaned print jobs as each printer.
  • If a particular printer is not working or busy you can just go to another printer without re-sending the print job.
  • Print jobs will be held for 3.5 days so that you can print Friday afternoon or from home during the weekend and retrieve all your jobs on Monday.

Older Printers (Dell, HP, Samsung, Xerox)

Consumer and small business printers previously purchased by the district or by ICSD buildings are only minimally supported by the Technology Department. We will endeavor to keep these devices online as long as possible but toner and maintenance costs are the responsibility of the assigned building. Printing to these devices costs between 4-11 cents a page.

Most of these devices have already been retired but a few of the main offices in the district, department offices at the high school, and the office at the board building still maintain a few for the convenience of their office staff.
