Copies at school

We buy plain AND colored paper out of our budget and only the school's staff is allowed to make my copies. Someting was mentioned about toner (that was in the long story) and I almost lost it! I was about to really kill her with kindness!!
The school hired a business manager who formerly worked for USWest and was let go during the big merger out here. She makes you feel as though you are spending her last $5 but has no problem spending our money!
Okay now I'm getting the long of it and I'm sorry, I think right now I'm just confused all the sudden the Principal's word means nothing unless it is on paper.....

Boy, do I feel lucky! We buy our own paper a lot only because we want to use colored paper. Our principal includes PTO usage of the copier in his budget. We have our own user ID just like every department and teacher. I would guess we run 3000+ copies a month. (Newsletter is a lot of it.)I think if our account got way out of whack, we would need to talk about reimbursing him. We've never had a problem, he's never even mentioned a limit. It would be a bit tough to decide on some things what is school and what is PTO. For example, our volunteer form is used to give each teacher a list of who in her class will volunteer for what - regardless if it's a PTO activity.

Good luck!

Copies at school was created by mykidsmom
We made an agreement with the Principal two years ago that the school would make our copies as long as we bougth our own paper. A memo was written and now the new Business Manager (before she knew about this memo) wanted to charge me $.04 per copy or go by a card at kinko's. Short of the long, I ran to Walmart bought a ream of white paper and asked again and no big deal. My concern is, she now has a copy of the memo but I feel there needs to be some clarifications made to cover ourselves in the future! This is where I'm stuck! Any ideas??
I know I want to clarify how much paper they can order and we need to know Before the order is made.....this is were I hit mud!
