Staff printing from Chromebooks

This post would not have been possible without the
help of RCHS Spanish Teacher Deborah Rodriguez.
Now that almost 100 teachers are using Chromebooks with your students (or will soon be), you may have noticed that you haven't quite gone paperless but definitely less paper. There are times when you still need a hard copy of that document you created on your Chromebook and would like to print. You used to have to login into a different device to print. Not anymore. Thanks to Deborah!!

Here's the steps to set up Cloud printing on your district-provided Chromebook. Note: The first step must be completed on a hard wired, networked teacher computer (not your Chromebook.)

  1. On your district provided, hard-wired, networked computer, open Chrome. Verify that you are signed into Chrome with your WUSD Account. (If you're not sure whether or not you are signed into Chrome, visit the Chrome Menu (hotdogs) > Settings. At the top of the page, you should see something like below. If not, click on the Sign In Button.)

  2. Go to Chrome Menu (Hotdogs) > Settings > Show Advanced Settings and Scroll down to Google Cloud Print > Click on Manage

  3. Under Classic Printers > Click Add Printer > Select SecurePrint-BW
  4. Go to your Chromebook and you will be able to print to SecurePrint-BW when on our network. After completing steps 1-3, I highly recommend signing out of your Chromebook and signing back in to ensure that these changes take effect.
Be sure to thank Deborah for this great tip! We are better together!!
