Dear colleagues,

As the summer comes to a close and we prepare together for the coming school year, I wish to take this opportunity to welcome you all back to Benicia USD.  I also would like to take a few minutes of your time to give you all a quick update and instruction on the new copiers/printers our technology department deployed during these weeks.

Our contract with the previous copier/printer service expired in May 2018.  The Technology and Business departments worked together to find an improved and cheaper solution for staff needs by deploying a new printer fleet district-wide.  The new copiers/printers are HP workhorses, designed and implemented for medium/large offices.

As everyone starts to come back from summer break, please be sure to stop by your school site’s front office and pick up an RFID sticker to place on your school ID badge. This sticker will allow you to log into any of the new printers throughout the district and print directly from your district computer, make copies, or scan to email.  When printing, use the printer on your computer named: “Secure Print on busd-print”.

The link below will take you to a training page we have set up to make the change as smooth as possible. While we all know change can be hard, all IT staff will be around to answer questions as we start the 2018-19 school year.

How to login with your RFID badge for the first time
  1. Press your ID on to the red sensor next to the printer screen and it will bring you to this Screen.

2. Tap “OK” to get to the login screen.

3. Enter your BUSD credentials (first initial, last name and your password)

4. When you see this screen you are done and can begin using your badge to print from any of the new printers.

How to Print from your computer
  1. When selecting print from your computer please be sure to select the printer called "Secure Print on busd-Print"

2. Place your ID to the red RFID sensor to the left of the printer screen to login

3. Once logged in select “HP AC Secure Pull Print”

4. Once you have selected HP AC Secure Pull Print you will see a list of all your pending print jobs.

5. On the right you will see 4 options:

  • Print All - This will print all documents in your queue
  • Print Delete - If you have multiple documents pending and wish to only print one, select the document and click “Print Delete”
  • Print Keep - This will print the document once and keep it in your queue until you delete it.
  • Refresh - This will talk back to the print server and make sure all your documents are listed.

NOTE: All documents that are not printed within four days will be removed from your print queue unless you have selected the Print Keep option.

How to make copies
  1. Place your ID to the red RFID sensor to the left of the printer screen to login

2. Once logged in select “Copy”

3. On this main copy screen you will have basic options like double sided

4. If you would like to see the more advanced options click the “Options” button in the bottom left of the screen. Here you will have the option to add staples and much more.

How to Scan to Email
  1. Place your ID to the red RFID sensor to the left of the printer screen to login

2. Once logged in select “Scan to Email”

3. Here the only field that needs to be field out is the “to” field

4. Once done select send

NOTE: If you are scanning a large number of documents, you may receive two separate emails.
