New Copy/Print System Implemented in All Barrington 220 Buildings

New Toshiba multifunction printers have now been installed in all buildings. As the project winds down, I'd like to thank all staff members for your patience during this transition. I would also like to thank my colleagues in the Department of Technology & Innovation for their hard work in making this rollout as smooth as possible.

Here are a few notes about the project:
  • 184 Toshiba multifunction devices (print/copy/scan) have been deployed in 13 buildings.
  • 1,100 staff members have successfully enrolled their ID badge with the managed print system.
  • Over 4,000 print or copy jobs per day are run through our printers with very little trouble from these new devices.
  • Staff members can now release their print jobs at any available printer within the district. 
  • Print jobs remain in queue for up to 48 hours.
  • For those who scan, our new printers will scan and send a document to your email address without the need for typing your email address. The badge authentication at the printer takes care of this step.
Savings are already being realized, with some of these savings coming to us in a somewhat unexpected way. Within the last 30 days, 2,466 print jobs remained in the print queues and were never released for printing; thus, 16,119 sheets were never printed, 1.9 trees were never used, and an estimated $1,383 was saved. In the past, these print jobs would have piled up near the printers and would have been thrown away. Extrapolated to 9 months (a full school year), this figure could represent 145,000 saved sheets of printed paper, 17.1 saved trees, and over $12,000 saved. And this just represents unclaimed print jobs.
If you have any questions regarding the use of the new printing/copying system, please visit your school LTA in the Library. Our tech support team is also available for any technical questions that you may have. You may contact the tech team during school and business hours at x. 1500.
