Presentation of the text document is part of the writing process.

Print text documents with laser printers, multiple copies with photocopier.
Documents with appropriately sized images can be printed on color printers.

Some simple guidelines will assist students to prepare their document for final presentation. Elementary students should not print unless the teacher has previewed their document. Middle School and High School students should only print draft and final copies of documents as required by the guidelines given by their teacher.

Printing Guidelines - Teacher 

Color copying and printing should only be allowed in situations where usage and output can be carefully monitored and controlled. Students should request to print color documents. On average, using a color printer costs from 4 to 100 times more than a laser printer – even if it is a black and white text document.
Suggestions:

  • Reduce the size of the graphic and wrap the text around it to maximize page use
  • Consider use of grayscale for images
  • Plan to conserve paper (e.g. can more than one notice fit to a page)
  • Consider the audience and intention of the document – does it demand color
  • Consider the educational value of the image and text
  • Consider options to printing – posting online, email distribution, etc
