Since you are 1:1 anyway, why don't they issue them with logins? Then they can only use their own laptop. It would help with accountability- if a student damages one under your current system they can just put it down and grab another. That must cause issues. Lots of places had contracts the kids and parents have to sign including clauses for taking them home that detail charges for loss or damage. I've never seen a total free for all system like yours before! You might not want to charge rental fees, but surely damage should be paid for. Is the problem that the kids don't want to carry them around all day?
How is the usage monitored? What type of devices are they? How secure are they? There must be some kind of mdm type system that handles purchases and installations and security. Even at high school kids should still have their internet access monitored in some way. Which you can't do without logins or assigned devices. Those systems usually offer some kind of tracking. School owned devices with no tracking or security would be a major no-go here and I'm sure your school has something.
