Saving taxpayer money: Kent ISD consolidates printing services

Grand Rapids Community College and Kent ISD are combining printing services to save taxpayer money and streamline service to school districts and non-profit organizations.

The newly consolidated printing service is located on GRCC’s campus.  The partnership will save money by increasing the efficiency of the college print shop and eliminating the expense of staffing copy services at Kent ISD. 

“In recent years, we’ve continued to hear from our constituents and their elected representatives that we in the public sector should do more to collaborate and, where we can, operate like a business,” said Grand Rapids Community College President Steven Ender. “I’d like to think this is the type of collaboration they have in mind. This reduces costs for both institutions and increases efficiency at the same time.”

The consolidation took effect July 1.   Service is also available online through GRCCePrint.

Kent ISD serves more than 20 area school districts, including: Comstock Park Public Schools, East Grand Rapids Public Schools, Forest Hills Public Schools, Godfrey Lee Public Schools, Godwin Heights Public Schools, Grand Rapids Public Schools, Grandville Public Schools, Kelloggsville Public Schools, Kenowa Hills Public Schools, Kentwood Public Schools, Lowell Area Schools, Northview Public Schools, Rockford Public Schools, Sparta Area Schools and Wyoming Public Schools as well as Grand Rapids and Calvin Christian schools.
