Printer technology updated


The Mirror reporter

SPASH is a school of change. This school has never been afraid to change something that will better our school.

One change recently implemented involved the school printers. Instead of students having access to almost every printer in the school, the technical support made a change. Students now have to type in their student id number on a keypad to retrieve their printed paper.

Technician Al Hintz said the change “was a group effort, starting with our technology committee.”

Librarian Beth Molski said, “from what I’ve seen, it’s saving a lot of paper.” This also clears up space on the printer storage. No longer are numerous copies being sent to the wrong printer. After 24 hours the document is deleted so if students forget to pick it up or don’t need it, the next time they do print they don’t have old documents printed as well.

“This honestly helps me out so much more because I never knew which printer was which,” student Andrea Zalac said.

This is not the only technology change. Tech support has upgraded network infrastructure and stability and all the students and teachers have gotten new laptops.

The work is not done. Tech support plans to upgrade the printers over winter break. “It’s always an evolving process,” Hintz said.
