[K12OSN] Hopefully the last permission question

Last problem I seem to be having is that when a student drops homework
into /home/drop/teacher1/class1 folder which is owned by teacher1 and
group teacher1 with Set Uid and Gid checked, the file the student drops
is still owned by the student.  I would like the user and group set to
teacher1.  The reason being that if the student still owns the file the
teacher cannot delete it, and it messes with the students user quota.
Once in the drop folder it is the teachers responsibility to remove the
file and no longer the students, so I believe these files should affect
teacher quotas not the student.  So how do I set any file dropped in
this folder to reset the owner and group to that of the enclosing
folder?  I would like to not have a script option, but something via
chmod or whatever is immediate.
