I would say it's probably the extremely long names plus the illegal
charactors, brackets, slashes etc.
try shorting the name on one of them and see if that makes any difference
eg IPD1 C3
are you able to update the ipads with apple configorator

I should have posted this sooner, but I've been really busy.
eosuna - They are iPad 2 16GB WiFi
iToaster - That answer would make sense if any of the other 60 iPads that have the same naming scheme were showing the same symptom, but they haven't. (I didn't choose the naming scheme, and agree that it's long. I "inherited" it and will change it at the end of the school year.) And yes, I was able to sync the iPads, install and update apps with no issue.
The issue has been resolved, and here's what I did:
I ended up trying a couple of things that the folks at Apple Enterprise suggested, but it was going to cause me to have to completely rebuild the Configurator library, and possibly re-image the iPads, and the teachers needed them for class. At the time this happened I was only working for the school part time and wasn't going to have time to do this.
So I restored the MacBook Air that runs Configurator and images the iPads using a Time Machine backup I had made (thankfully) recently, and BOOM! no more ? . I have no idea how or why this would have fixed the issue, but it's been resolved for some time now, and it hasn't reoccured on this cart or any of the other three.
