I just riffed a gClassFolders fork that uses +Romain Vialard
's completely amazing DriveApp library to transfer ownership of all class folders and student dropboxes to the teacher you are setting up the folders for (provided you are on a GAFE domain). Not sure if this is the desired effect in your school setting, or if you WANT ownership to live in a role account.
Advantages of teacher ownership of folders? More control over deletion of old folders. Doesn't clutter up account of user doing the provisioning.
Disadvantages? Not being able to archive and look at folders of student work across classes, over time, etc....
This might be a feature that gets turned on by the user....thoughts?
Here's a link to copy this version if you want to play with it: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AmvrNcqyzerndDZNcU04NU5IZGpuWlV2MDFid2NEWVE#gid=0
