Hi

I work for a school and the state does allow the teachers to be local administrators and the school district wants them to be able to install their own software or additional hardware like USB drives.  I can I do this from group policy

most software installs would required registry edits - so what your asking is not possible they have to administrators or told to use portable software, allowing USB via group policy is possible.

i would recommend deep-freeze they can install anything and if the machines gets messed up a simple restart to get to the point in time where everything is perfect.

i agree with NewVillageIT that would be the fastest way to provide admin access but i think it will still not solve your problem since the state does not allow them to be local admins.
