I have only read up to

  "program rapidly copies our custom Ubuntu image from one master laptop"

I think dumping whatever image is less clever than using FAI.

Besides more flexibility (you could use different hardware) I would
think that delivering uninstalled hardware and let FAI run once a
student switches it on the first time inside the network to let FAI
do its work is even less exhausting than the described procedure -
but I might be wrong.

Kind regards
