I work at a school where we are just starting to use iPads with students.  At this point, the plan is to have 5 or 6 iPads per class with three sections at each grade level.  Apps need to be identical within a grade level and there isn't much crossover between grades.  That means we're supposed to purchase about 15 copies of the apps we purchase.  That puts us below the volume purchase plan minimums. 


The only setup that mades sense to me is to create one AppleID per grade level, to set up one of the iPads, and to set up the rest as clones with automatic app download.  That will keep all the iPads idential without any syncing.  Works great.


The problem is: there is no way to pay for more than one copy of the apps.  This will go away when we go over 20 copies because then we can use volume purchase plan (even if we only actually use one of the purchased apps).  Would like to be honest but can't figure out how to do it.  I'm certainly not going to set up an AppleID for every iPad - that would be very inefficient.  For now, is there anything we can do?
