$25 added to your copier balance

As of today, Sept 23rd,  $25 was added to all certified staff/office staff copier balances.

Although we’re in progress for replacing PrintGroove,  it will be late October before the replacement will be available for testing.  Considering all the problems we have run into with PrintGroove, it was requested that we shift some resources to enable better access to the copiers to get us through until the new system is fully ready.

So where did this $25 come from?
In our contract with Laser Resources, each certified/office staff member was to receive $25 for the copier and $75 for the print shop…  so the change did not cost the district anything, we just re-allocated $25 from your print shop allocation.  Now the allocation for the year is $50 for the copier and $50 for the print shop. Keep in mind – this isn’t a maximum or a limit – your building/department can always choose to add to your copier or print shop allocation.

Changes coming to wireless and Outlook…

Microsoft Outlook….   This summer we moved all staff and students over to Google for email. However, many of you noticed that you can still see your old email if you open up Outlook. This was done on purpose, so you could easily access and compare older email during the conversion.  However, in the first week of October, we will be deleting everything in Outlook/Exchange.


Wireless Network….    WDM-STAFF wireless network will be going away (it’s already happened at Valley High School) and will be removed from the other buildings also.  It will be phased out one building at a time and your personal wifi devices will need to move to a new network called WDM-SCHOOLS.  Each school building will receive updates and notices on their scheduled move from our network engineer, Scott Crothers.

If you are interested in moving your personal iOS (iphone) device over to WDM-SCHOOLS, here are the detailed directions>  http://wp.me/p1JF02-1lA
