Printers & Printing
Network Printers are printers which are owned by the district and are used by multiple computers. Typically they are Xerox Multi-Function Printers and are serviced by a contractor. You can set up your computer to print to one of these Xerox printers on your own, or if you have trouble with this process, you can fill out an online help ticket so that a technician can assist you. When filling out your help ticket, please be as descriptive as possible when noting which part of the process you had difficulty with, which troubleshooting steps you have already tried, and the make/model of the printer you wish to install.
Installation Using Windows Explorer
This process has 4 basic steps:
1. Find the Printer Name
First, you will need to know the name or IP address of your printer.
This is usually found on the front of the printer itself.
If not, you can check with someone else who has successfully printed to that printer, or you can fill out an online help ticket so that a technician can assist you.
2. Find out your "Hub."
All schools and buildings in the Kansas City Public Schools are grouped into "hubs."
Each hub has a different address they will need to type into their browser later.
Find your school or building in the tables at the end of the article and copy the address next to it for later use.
3. Click the Start Button
On your computer, locate the start button ( in the lower left-hand corner of the screen) and type in the address you noted earlier.
4. Find your copier
In the list that appears, find the name of the printer you want to connect to and double-click on it.
Installation Using Internet Explorer
Click on the printer you want to install.
Click on the Connect link to install the printer.
Click Yes at the prompt.
After installation, click the back arrow to return to the printer listing.
