Reminder: Please Continue to Share Info About New Chromebook Login Screen

Please continue to share information about this change since IT has received feedback that some users are still confused about how to login on the new Chromebook login screen. Remind everyone to just click the “Sign in with a different account” link on the left hand side. ONLY K-3 students using a Clever Badge can login by clicking “NEXT” on the right side. Clicking “Sign in with a different account” allows you to enter your login credentials and bypasses all the issues that users are having. Posters were ponied to all schools, but here’s the link if you want to print and share it again: bit.ly/cbloginposter. Also, in case anyone is worried–the camera is not taking pictures or recording video of anyone–several staff were confused that this might be happening. Other questions? Direct folks to the Chromebook Login & Clever FAQ at bit.ly/ppsclever. Here’s the link to the video posted above.

Chromebook Printing is Here!

gcp

At this time printing is available on the Ricoh copiers for staff only – staff located at a single school are set up to print; staff working at multiple locations are only set up to print to a single school. To set up Chromebook printing for all assigned locations, please contact the IT Service Desk at 503-916-3375 or itservicedesk@pps.net for assistance.

Simple Directions

From your document, go to File, then Print. In the Destination section, click on the Change button. Under Google Cloud Print, click Show All. You should see all your building Ricoh copiers listed. Select the one you want to print to and then click the Print button. You would follow the same steps if you wanted to print a webpage.

*If you do not see your building copiers under Google Cloud Print, please contact the IT Service Desk at 503-916-3375 or itservicedesk@pps.net for assistance.

Other Info

  • Staff working at multiple sites will automatically be shared the printers from their main site and will need to contact the Service Desk to have your other assigned sites shared.
  • Staff working at multi-campus schools (i.e. Chief Joe/Ockley Green, East/West Sylvan, or Beverly Cleary) will be shared the printer groups for all their campus sites.
  • Itinerant Staff who are at their site for more than a couple days can contact the Service Desk to be shared their site’s printers for the duration of their stay.
  • Regarding RICOH copier/printers that require the entry of a Printer Code: If you have a RICOH printer that requires the entry of a printer code, your Chromebook will not be able to print to that printer as there is no method of entering the code into the Chromebook. To be able to print to these copiers from your Chromebook, the code entry requirement would need to be removed by your building administration.
