Adding a District Printer

Staff members of districts connected to active directory have the ability to add printers to computers that they are logged into.  If you often move between districts, you can install printers from multiple districts.

  • This will only install the printer for your profile on the computer that you install it on. 
  • Some printers are restricted by administration and you will need to contact the helpdesk to install them. 
  • If you cannot find the printer, encounter other problems, or do not feel comfortable adding a printer yourself please contact the helpdesk.
