Printing From An iPad

To print from an iPad, email the document(s) you want to print in PDF form to one of the printers in the table above. The district recommends the Gmail app. Instructions on how to sign in to that app (once downloaded) are below:

Sign In To The Gmail App

To print a document, the app must support email as a sharing option. The example workflow below is done using the Pages and Gmail apps:



While each app may look slightly different, you can generally access the email sharing option by tapping on the share/more menu button and then tapping either the export option, or the send a copy/email/[open in] Gmail option



A draft email layout; note the target printer in the "To:" field as well as the document(s) that will be printed 

Once you've emailed the job, you should receive a confirmation email with some additional info (Click to jump to the notifications section of the article)


Printing From A Chromebook

To print from a Chromebook, you must download a copy of your work as a PDF (or an image file like .jpg or .png). Once that's downloaded, you attach the file to an email and send it to one of the printers in the list at the top of the article. In the screenshots below, the process to export your work (Google Docs is shown) and then attach the downloaded file to email is outlined:


As long as you can export the content to a .pdf, .jpg, or .png, you can print it.


To print the file you just exported, attach it to an email and send to the printer's email address.


Notifications/Checking Job Status

After you've submitted a print job, you'll receive a notification with the status of the job:

Most emails will contain a link to check the status of the job in real time should something go wrong. Click on the link (or go to and sign in with your computer username and password (not your email login) to see a more detailed readout of the job status.
