A summary of the plan is available to developers under non-disclosure, but basically it's a streamlined device enrollment program. If an iPad is in the program, Apple will auto-enroll the device to the assigned company's MDM software (along with Global HTTP Proxy) and supervise the iPad, thus taking Apple Configurator out of the picture. Critically, the MDM profile can't be removed.
But Apple hasn't shipped the program yet, nor given a timetable for when companies and schools can expect it. For LAUSD, it didn't come soon enough.
