Each site must create an implementation plan for this 1:1 project. Here is a blog that has a number of questions you will want to consider-
Preparing Your School for an iPad Implementationand one that includes a list of "DOs" and "DON'Ts" that you may find helpful- Learning in Hand. This educator's changed thoughts over the 2010-2011 school year on how to set up class sets of iPads and iPods may help you avoids some bumps with your initial set-up when your carts arrive- The Spicy Learning Blog

You need to format the implementation plan how it will be most useful for you and your team. However, key sections to include would be times, actions, person(s) responsible, and date completed. Here is a partial sample I’ve put together:
